Eleanor Tiernan & John F O'Donnell
This article is from 2008.
The premise here - that bumbling, shaking Tiernan can't cope without her American sidekick - unfortunately turns out to be too close to the truth. When O'Donnell is a no-show, Tiernan's jokes about having crap material aren't followed with any real gags, leaving the audience laughing nervously and biting on fists in embarrassment. Let down by a rushed and overly scripted set with clichéd jokes, Tommy's cousin confuses more than she amuses.
