Got the January blues? Award-winning comedian David O’ Doherty is guaranteed to get your chuckle muscles back in working order. Dubbed “the Aldi Bublé” and the “Ryanair Enya,” the Irish comedian is delighted to present his brand new show David O’Doherty: Big Time featuring talking and songs played on a crappy keyboard from 1986 at The Epstein Theatre on Tuesday, January 24 and Tuesday, February 21, 2017.
Born in Dublin in 1975, modest David describes himself as “a failed jazz musician, scrambling about for something else to do with his life!” He is, in fact, a man of many talents – comedian, author, musician, actor and 1990 East Leinster under 14 triple jump bronze medalist.
David has written several books, composed two plays and released three comedy CDs. His latest book for children, Danger Is Everywhere, illustrated by Chris Judge, was selected for the UNESCO Dublin, City of Literature Citywide Reading Campaign and published in 10 languages around the world.
His stand-up has won many international awards including the if.comedy award at The Edinburgh Fringe in 2008 and Best International Comedian at the 2014 Sydney Comedy Festival.
Last year, David’s comedy was nominated for the best show awards at the Adelaide Fringe and Melbourne International Comedy Festival and he spent the summer on tour around America with Flight of the Conchords.
He is often seen and heard on Channel 4’s 8 Out of 10 Cats Does Countdown and The Unbelievable Truth for B.B.C. Radio 4.
Theatre manager, Rebekah Pichilingi, said, “David O’ Doherty’s unique style of comedy is just the tonic we need to cheer us up during a dreary January. And he’s so good we’ve booked him twice – so if you can’t make it in January you’ve got the chance to see him again in February!
