Jason O’Toole: When you Google your new TV show, the first image that pops up is one of your guests literally riding you! (It was the 20-times UK champion jockey, A.P. McCoy – J. O’T).
Tommy Tiernan: You couldn’t plan that! I think what makes the show worth doing is that it’s a space where things are allowed to happen, rather then it being decided in advance by the powers-that-be. Whoever comes on has to be in the same headspace of, ‘Anything could happen here!’ And those spaces don’t really exist on television. Sport is the only one I can think of where the outcome hasn’t been pre-determined. It probably happens more often on radio. But it rarely happens on TV. Even a show like Graham Norton’s: that’s a funny show, but a fierce amount of pre-production goes into it. There’s something about this one that suits me. It’s not a highfalutin idea. We haven’t reinvented the wheel. It’s just two people talking.
Did you model it on Graham Norton’s in any way?
