Twitter Comedy is the brainchild of comedian and incessant tweeter, Tiernan Douieb.
In early 2009, Tiernan took part in a poorly attended gig in London & complained to his online followers on twitter about the small audience. Responses came thick and fast that he should have just tweeted the gig to them.
And so, an idea formed... On June 8th 2009, Tiernan and eight other comics became the first line up to perform a full gig over twitter.
This idiotic and (some said) revolutionary experiment/gig gained international press coverage.
Tiernan found himself being interviewed by Canadian papers & translated into Norwegian.
In the event, roughly 7,500 tweeters watched it unfold live online at the time of the first gig, with who knows how many more watching via other means such as tweetdeck, etc...

After the first gig's success, we decided to raise the stakes and so, on August 19th 2009 the second Twitter Comedy Club opened its doors to real people as well as virtual ones.
Our main twitter account is @tweetcomedyclub, but we also have @tweetcomedy2 & @tweetcomedy3 as backups
