Dan Tiernan

BBC New Comedy Award winner Dan Tiernan will tour his stand-up show Going Under between January and March 2024.

The tour's promoter says: "Following the success of his sold-out Fringe run, which had extra shows added due to phenomenal demand, and an Edinburgh Comedy Awards 2023 Best Newcomer nomination, comedian Dan Tiernan is set to embark on his debut UK tour with his critically-acclaimed hour Going Under from Wednesday 10th January 2024. This includes a run at London's Soho Theatre and a special one-off show at the iconic Leicester Square Theatre, as well as shows in Manchester, Edinburgh and Glasgow. Tickets are on sale now."

The blurb for the show is: "He's 27, gay and riddled with dyspraxia. Dan's had a big year, processing his younger sister's cancer diagnosis, quitting his job as a dinner lady, going full-time in comedy, and finally moving out of his parents' Manchester home. Yet despite this newfound independence (and freedom to smoke weed whenever he wants), he somehow still feels that he's going under. Exploring everything from being desperately single to competing with his successful stepsister, and asking the poignant questions: What would happen if a dog got high? How much military precision is needed to feed a rowdy group of Year 5's? And why has his tattoo-averse num suddenly had a change of heart? Expect a gag-heavy, high-energy debut hour from the UK's biggest rising star in comedy."
