Gits & Shiggles
Gits & Shiggles is a cool new comedy club from the Half Moon. Headliners are some of the biggest names on the circuit, accompanied by performances from carefully selected emerging talent plus hilarious resident sketch group Stream of Piffle. Sit back and relax in candle lit surroundings with venue bar, freshly made food and table service... and hopefully spurt said drink and/ or food over the person in front of you in a fit of gits and shiggles.
Late Night Gimp Fight
Late Night Gimp Fight combine song, dance and the occasional gimp with their trademark off-the-wall sketches in an hour of comedy that’ll leave you feeling violated, but in a good way.

Bob Slayer (UK) is a Rock & Roll Tour manager turned Award Winning Comedian. His first solo show at the Edinburgh Fringe in 2008 was based on touring with acts such as Snoop Dogg, Electric Eel Shock, Bloodhound Gang etc. He has been back every year since as well as performing in Comedy Clubs all over the world.
“Good natured, bad behaviour from a very funny man…” Kate Copstick, The Scotsman “Infamous for antics wilder than the acts he has looked after…” Classic Rock
Bob Slayer is also the architect behind Heroes of Fringe (formerly the Alternative Fringe) which promotes shows at Edinburgh Fringe and beyond with a “no rent, no guarantees and strictly no Pay-to-Play ethos”
Well, some say legend has it he was discovered playing a tiny violin under a rock on the banks of the Nile by a fisherman. This is rubbish. He can’t play the violin. He’s so unmusical he once spent two hours trying to call someone on a saxophone.
Some say he was raised by bears in the forests of British Columbia. This would explain his enjoyment of honey, and excessively hairy stomach. Others say ‘Tiernan Dweeb, never heard of him. You mean Tommy Tiernan?’ These people are ingrates.
Truth is, Tiernan was born at some point a while ago and now does stand-up comedy. There’s a load of stuff inbetween but its not interesting in the slightest. However, stand-up is, and since he started several moons ago, its all been going rather well. He does tell the funnies and people do laugh and that.
Tiernan’s successful 2010 Edinburgh Fringe show ‘Littlest Things’, have led to a busy last 6 months, with 2011 set to not involve much sleep at all for the little blighter. Already gigging around the country on a regular basis, he has also been doing the warm-up for BBC1?s Dick and Dom’s Funny Business, running his comedy club Fat Tuesday to sell out crowds, and is currently working on several exciting projects for the tellybox.
Over the past few years he has supported International star Jim Jefferies and Russell Howard, worked as warm up for Mark Watson’s We Need Answers, and played at some of the top music festivals in the UK.
His debut solo Edinburgh show in 2009, ’28 Years Later’, received several sell out crowds and great reviews for his tenuously zombie linked rant about kidulthood. He preceded that with two sketch shows as part of troupe ‘Tea and Cake’ which gained comparisons to Chris Morris for its dark undertones.
Tiernan is also a skilled performer of Comedy 4 Kids, clean shows to children aged 6-11 and their parents. He has taken this all over the world and is now adept at dealing with 6 year olds who want to ‘be a duck’ when they grow up. He invented and ran the world’s first ever Twitter Comedy Club with an estimated 14000 viewers and international press, and is part of the highly acclaimed London Comedy Improv alongside Rufus Hound, Tara Flynn, Brendan Dempsey and Michael Legge. Tiernan also writes a popular daily blog and one day aims to go on Dragon’s Den with his idea for zips on pitta breads.
Still wondering where you’ve seen him before? How about the Ewok Movie and the Battle of Endor? Yes? Well that wasn’t him. As I said, ingrates. All of you.
