Tommy Tiernan: Paddy Crazy HorseTommy Tiernan: Paddy Crazy Horse - Dundee Rep Theatre

The thoughtful Irish comedian has lately turned his hand to acting and being the host of a more than usually risky talk show on Irish TV, but the lure of the spotlight brings him back to doing what he’s best-known for: comedy. His latest show features lots of dirty words and a zest for life.

Graceland LiveGraceland Live: Eden Court Theatre, Inverness

Paul Simon’s 1986 album Graceland got some stick at the time for breaking the boycott against South Africa, but in retrospect its breath-taking fusion of American and African popular music made for one of the best and freshest albums of the decade. It’s recreated here with a full band, gifted singer-guitarist Josh Turner and the South African Cultural Choir UK.
