Tiernan has been doing the stand-up thing for a little while now. In that time that he's graced many a stage with his beardy face, playing gigs all over the UK and abroad. Douieb's friendly manner and fast-paced gags have made him a highly sought after compere and act on the circuit. He has done a lot of work for the Comedy Club 4 Kids, which is a stand-up show for 6-11 year olds, invented by James Campbell. Tiernan rather enjoys these as its one of the few times the audience are on the same intellectual level as him.
"I would challenge anyone not to warm to Tiernan's boyish enthusiasm. He has an easy rapport with the audience and his gags provided plenty of laughs for the sell out crowd". – One4Review.com
"Clearly a natural comic...an inherently funny person" – AllTheFestivals.net
"...Uplifting and light hearted....Douieb was energetic, fast paced and his humour was full of kitsch appeal" - BBC
