Our new Minister for Cheery Pessimism

Tiernan Douieb is an award winning stand-up comedian, or at least he was until the coronavirus made that less fun to do. He’s also a writer, podcaster, actor, very amateur juggler (he can catch one ball), noodle fan, experienced sigher, and very tired dad. He was also one of the first people to lend support and participate in our original lockdown series of Twitter games, #LoonyLotto?
He has performed all over the world in most of the best comedy clubs and theatres and also several of the worst ones. Tiernan is the regular host, writer and everything for the Partly Political Broadcast, a comedy politics podcast that was one of The Observer’s Top Ten Political Podcasts of 2018. He also co-runs Comedy Club 4 Kids, shouting jokes at other people’s children mainly because his own daughter is a much tougher audience. We believe this experience will aid him with his duties in the the Westminster Comedy Club once the MP & voting age gets reduced to five years.?
Tiernan has written for TV, articles, podcasts, adverts, other comedians. He has also written a variety of angry but creative post-it notes on the van parked right outside his flat, that’s been there for ages, and is doing his head in. He has also done some of that acting, including in C4’s Fresh Meat and a beer commercial for beer that he’s never actually enjoyed. He once saw a squirrel eating a Cornetto like a human which is up there in his top five life moments along with now being our OFFICIAL Minister for Cheery Pessimism.?
