Tommy Tiernan will perform 36 hours of non stop stand up comedy between the hours of 3pm on Good Friday April 10th and Dawn on Easter Sunday Morning April 12th.
To mark Easter weekend in what he calls his own â€œperverted genuflectionâ€ (but genuflection none the less) Tommy has decided to take on not only a personal physical challenge but also a comedy marathon. To remain awake, lucid, interesting and even funny for 36 hours straight. For every hour he performs he will be allowed a 5 minute rest.
As this has never been attempted before he will have set the record at 24 hours, but in true Tommy style he insists on completing 36 hours to finish as dawn breaks on Easter morning. An adjudicator from The Guinness Book of Records is flying in to cover the event and make sure it meets all guidelines. It will take place in Galwayâ€™s Nuns Island Theatre and all profits will go to the Galway Diocesan Youth Services, better known as Number 4 which is a resource centre for teenagers in Galway city.
