“Tiernan has a uniquely oblique angle on the word, and her routines have a touch of whimsy while grounded in astute observation. It means her set sounds fresh and original, without being so wilfully strange it will alienate all but the most dedicated followers.” – Chortle.co.uk

“Tiernan doesn’t do gimmicks, or props, or faux-musical numbers, or kitsch, or heckling, or topical trash-talk. She’s, simply and undeniably, just Eleanor Tiernan.” – Threeweek.co.uk
