Unlock your mind bra’s…David O’Doherty is back on tour with a brand new show made up of talking and songs played on a crappy keyboard from 1986.

As seen on BBC2’s Live At The Apollo and Channel 4’s 8 Out Of 10 Cats Does Countdown

David O’Doherty is a multi-award-winning comedian, author and musician, with a real emotional depth at the core of his seemingly fanciful material.
First nominated for the Best Newcomer Award in 2000 for his show The Story of the Boy Who Saved Comedy, David went on to win the main Edinburgh Comedy Award (formerly Perrier Award) in 2008 for Let’s Comedy.

He’s also a successful children’s author, publishing his first book Ronan Long Gets It Wrong in 2000 followed by100 Facts About Pandas and 100 Facts About Sharks. His current trilogy Danger Is Everywhere: SCHOOL OF DANGER was nominated for the Scholastic Laugh Out Loud Book Award.

“Has the air of being amiable, carefree and shambolic, which disguises some subtly clever writing. Quietly marvellous songs…Delightful, expertly told anecdotes, rich in descriptive prose”
