Jim Tierney’s interest in stand-up comedy was sparked in the Chicago open mic circuit during the comedy boom of the mid eighties. In 1987 he sold his book stores, closed his karate studio and packed up for Los Angeles. He does stand-up training with the unstoppable Bill Word, Anne Beats (Saturday Night Live original cast writer) and the Upright Citizens Brigade in Hollywood. He now studies formal acting under the sensational Jade Esteban Estrada. Tierney is never shy of physical comedy so flying karate kicks, & pratfalls. His performances are always colored with animated characters and unconventional act outs. Jim has a long time interest in the paranormal and it’s been said "write what you know", so in 2004 his act started including Bigfoot, UFO’s and aliens etc. In 2007 he quit writing and preforming his sketch show, producing his stand-up comedy rooms, and relocated to Texas just south of Austin. Once settled in San Marcos, while producing a new stand-up room and performing comedy in San Antonio, he decided in 2008 to start from scratch and develop a full 45 minute premise act devoted exclusively paranormal. His new show entitled "I’m ALIEN ated!" is his masterpiece. Jim’s training and expertise crafted a brilliantly hilarious act unlike anything on stage before. While most comedians poke fun or ridicule the paranormal, his act is delivered from an "in the know" perspective. It’s an intelligent, clever and clean act tailored especially for the paranormal community but funny enough to work for a "mainstream" audience. Aside from his production and comedy talents Mr. Tierney is a sculptor, a 7th degree professional Sensei, a great cook and an all around nice guy who loves animals, kids and gardening. comedian,community,karate,bouncing,stand up,audience,life
