David O’Doherty: Looking Up

EdCom in association with Lisa Richards and Chambers Management Present

DAVID O’DOHERTY IS LOOKING UP

2008 Edinburgh Comedy Award Winner                                                 2010 Hot Press Magazine Irish Comedian of the Year

Originally this was going to be a really, really stupid show. I’ve been working on books of made up facts about animals for the last two years and writing for children and delivering lots of scientific-sounding non-information at tour shows.

But over the winter a few things happened. I realized that quite a few of my friends are really struggling in the crappy Irish recession. I also got punched in the face by someone on the street for the second time in a year for no reason whatsoever.  So I’ve decided to try and talk about these things. It will still be mostly really stupid jokes, and songs played on a tiny keyboard, but also some things I think are quite important.

In the past year I have been touring Ireland and the UK, Montreal, Melbourne and recently did my first solo shows in LA and New York.  I’m have performed with artists such as Flight of the Conchords, The Divine Comedy and The Horne Section.

I am delighted to return to Edinburgh to present my new show.
