Tommy is second only to U2 when it comes to live ticket sales in Ireland. The Bovinity Tour culminated in 3 sold out shows to a total audience of 12,000 in the Marquee Cork. No other artist, Irish or International has ever managed to do this. It’s an astounding amount of tickets to sell for 3 days in one city.

With his Loose tour he broke all Irish box office records by selling out in venues across the country including a to date staggering 166 dates in Dublin’s one thousand seat theatre, Vicar Street.

Not only has Tommy success at home in Ireland and the UK but also in Canada, Australia, New Zealand and America.

Tommy was invited back to perform a solo run at this year’s Toronto Comedy Festival and has been booked by JFL for a huge Solo Nationwide Canadian tour for Spring 2011.

In America, Tommy has been invited to perform three times on the ‘Late Show with David Letterman’ to rave reviews with his fourth in the offing. His DVD ‘Something Mental’ has been aired numerous times now on America’s huge TV Comedy Network, Comedy Central as part of their popular ‘Secret Stash’ comedy slot and has now been viewed by over 3 million. Comedy Central UK are currently broadcasting a number of his live shows this year. The Comedy Channel & ABC in Australia are now planning to broadcast a number of Tommy’s shows this year too.
In April 2009 Tommy set the Guinness World Record for the longest Stand-Up Comedy Show by an individual by a staggering 36 hours and 15 minutes. He also completed many sell out “World Tours” of various Counties in Ireland and re-released a new edit of his Number 1 selling DVD called Cracked: (The Comedians Cut) Live at Vicar St.

So far in 2010 Tommy has performed in The Royal Albert Hall and completed a sell out solo tour of Australia and New Zealand, The Udderbelly Festival in London, The Toronto Just For Laughs Festival in Canada, The Edinburgh Festival to 5 star reviews & headlining “The Michael McIntyre Comedy Roadshow” in the UK.

What’s left of 2010 is jam packed with a number of Irish “World Tours”, a run at “Comix” in New York, a 6 week Solo UK tour and to finish off the year in style, Tommy will return to his very own Anfield Road, Vicar St. in November and December. Phew!
2011 will see Tommy begin his year with a run at Vicar Street in Dublin, then off to Australia & New Zealand for his solo tour, which has doubled in size since last year, then a solo tour of Canada, a new live DVD and a UK solo tour not to mention his continuing “World Tours” of Ireland.
Tommy has 5 children and is married to Yvonne. They live in Galway on the West coast of Ireland.


In Nov 1997 Tommy appeared for the first time on RTE’s famous ‘The Late Late Show’. As a result of some material about “the Lamb of God”, a group of protestors gathered outside the RTE studios after the show and a record number of complaints were made. As a result Tommy was accused of blasphemy in the Irish Senate. As a result of this and numerous other Late Late appearances, record amounts of complaints and bans from appearing Tommy has been christened ‘the most controversial comedian in Ireland’.
