In nearly three decades as a performer, Tommy Tiernan has never wanted to play it safe. So, when it came to doing a chat show, he threw out the rule book: going in blind, not knowing who would turn up. It could be a global star, like Adam Clayton, or a statesman like Michael D Higgins, or someone unknown to Tommy (and most of his audience), like autism awareness activist, Ciara-Beth Ni Ghriofa or geneticist Aoife McLysaght. It’s high-wire stuff and makes for electrifying viewing. Winging It brings together twenty-one extraordinary interviews from The Tommy Tiernan Show on RTE One – a mix of the profound, the profane, the funny and the moving. Tommy’s belief in honest conversation is at the heart of Winging It.
It’s all about curiosity, bravery and a willingness to listen. Winging It includes material that did not make the TV screen and the interviews are as gripping to read as they were to watch.
