Tommy Tucker

Was the late 60´s, when in the "sunny" Scotland on the city of Coatbridge was born the top Scottish comedian Tommy Tucker. As the years past and almost by accident, Tommy Tucker arrived in Gran Canaria for a two weeks holidays and without any previous plan those two weeks become a much longer period, so Gran Canaria and especially the beautiful resort of Puerto Rico has been his home for the last 14 years.

So, yes. Tommy Tucker career starts back in the year 1994 in Puerto Rico around the most important Irish Bars around the resort fourteen years ago. As the statement says "what is good, remains".

Not only is Tommy Tucker a top Scottish compere but also a fantastic golf player, at least, he has won few local competitions in Gran Canaria and needless to mention that he was the winner of the Atlantic Cup that took place in Puerto Rico Golf court on the winter of 2007. (see the pictures on the pictures gallery on this site).

Even it could sound ironic to be the compere of Dicey Reillys Irish Bar being Scottish but Tommy Tucker is linked to Ireland and all its traditions as his father is Irish (Westmeath), as Tommy Tucker usually mentions :

"Jesus was born in a stable, it doesn´t make him a horse"
