David O’Doherty: You Have To Laugh (Lisa Richards in association with Chambers Management)

By | Published on Thursday 16 August 2018

I mean, you don’t have to laugh, O’Doherty isn’t forcing you; although, he sort of is, because he’s really good at saying (and singing) such entertaining stuff. From procrastination to trying to make sense of the somewhat bleak times we’re living in, he helps us to find the funny side of life. Even having his wallet stolen provides him with enough material to give us a giggle. Along with his trusty 1986 children’s keyboard, this latest hour of comedy is as assured as he’s ever given us, and he even seems more confident than in previous shows. He tells us that he loves performing at the Fringe, and it seems safe to say that the audience loves him too.

Assembly George Square Theatre, until 27 Aug.
