Commander Chris Hadfield said that six months on the International Space Station made him feel a great sense of just how much the world is all one place and we are all one people living together on it. 'Very friendly but fiercely political' (Time Out) comedian Tiernan Douieb wonders why we have to send people quite so far away to have that realisation, and just how feasible is it to fire a large portion of the population into space until they behave?

Full press release

The inspirational Commander Chris Hadfield from the Canadian Space Agency said that after spending 6 months on the International Space Station he felt a great sense of just how much the world is all one place and we are all one people living together on it.

In this new hour of stand-up, professional cheery misanthrope Tiernan Douieb wonders why we have to send people quite so far away to have that realisation, and just how feasible is it to fire a large portion of the world into space until they behave? Lots of new words from 'very friendly but fiercely political' (Time Out) comedian Tiernan, that together will form sentences to create jokes about politics, people and why most things are despairingly wrong, including himself.

In the last year Tiernan has supported Frankie Boyle on his London work in progress dates, had his back shaved by Gillian Anderson as part of Mark Watson's 27 Hour Show for Comic Relief, and released his first full filmed show This Isn't For You for purchase online. He co-runs Comedy Club 4 Kids, spends far too much time on Twitter and fears the inevitable point where'll he stops being excited about the Marvel Cinematic Universe and therefore has nothing at all left to look forward to.

This is his first full month back at the Edinburgh Fringe since 2011. No, he's not sure why either.
