Eleanor Tiernan has been on the stand up comedy scene for quite a while now and I have performed with her on a fairly regular basis but never really got to know her so it was great to have her as a guest on Pod-a-Rooney and find out more about what makes her tick.
I have seen her a few times and have always been amazed at her turnover of new material. She always has something new to say on varying subject matters and is constantly working both here and abroad.
We talked about growing up in Athlone, getting a birthday present of acting classes and a mutual admiration of The Breeders.
