Comedian David O’Doherty Tours Ireland Autumn 2011

Comedian David O’Doherty Tours Ireland Autumn 2011 with a new show straight from Edinburgh Festival Fringe:

David O’Doherty Is Looking Up

2008 Edinburgh Comedy Award Winner
2010 Irish Comedian of the Year

A message from David:
“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 realised that quite a few of my friends are really struggling in the crappy Irish recession. I 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 the UK and at the Edinburgh, Montreal and Melbourne festivals and recently did my first solo shows in LA and New York.  I have performed with artists such as Flight of the Conchords, The Divine Comedy and The Horne Section.
I am delighted to return to Ireland to present my new show.”

David is co-author of the best-selling book 100 Facts About Pandas, and the soon to be published 100 Facts About Sharks (out 6 October 2011).

This year he became the least famous person ever to have hosted the BBC quiz Nevermind The Buzzcocks.
