Are you ahead of the pack this Christmas, and have all of your presents sorted - except for that one person you just can't think what the hell to get them? Don't fret, we've got you sorted.

To whet your live-events appetite, here's a round-up of some of the best live events coming your way in 2019. 

Arts, Theatre, and Comedy

 

TOMMY TIERNAN - PADDY CRAZY HORSE TOUR

Nationwide, January - May

Irish comedian, actor, writer and presenter Tommy Tiernan confirms new 'Paddy Crazy Horse' shows for 2019. As if receiving instructions from a strange and distant star, Tommy Tiernan always takes to the stage refusing to take anything seriously. The political and the personal are all up for grabs as the only goal of the evening is laughter.
