Edinburgh Preview Double Bill:
Matt Forde & Eleanor Tiernan
Eleanor Tiernan is a stand up comedian, writer and actress known for her uniquely oblique world view. She was recently a panelist on BBC Radio 4’s News Quiz and Where’s the F In News? as well as BBC NI on The Blame Game. Her stand up has featured on Comedy Central’s The Alternative Comedy Experience and led her to be chosen as support act for top stand up comics including Stewart Lee, Tig Notaro, Ardal O’Hanlon, Jason Manford, Jason Byrne and Reg D Hunter among others.
Eleanor has penned 8 Edinburgh Fringe festival shows. Her 2017 show “People Pleaser” put her on the Sunday Times list of Top Ten Female Stand Ups To Watch. In 2018 she performed in New Order, the Melbourne International Comedy festival showcase for UK and Irish acts. She returns to Melbourne in 2019 with her latest show “Success Without A Sextape”.
‘Her routines have a touch of whimsy while grounded in astute observation. It means her set sounds fresh and original, without being so wilfully strange it will alienate all but the most dedicated followers’ Chortle
‘The fastest-rising comedy talent in the country’ Irish Times
‘Eleanor Tiernan is far and away the best comic actress I have seen on stage’ Hot Press Ireland
