David O’Doherty – David O’Doherty Will Try To Fix Everything (Lisa Richards Ltd In Association With Chambers Management)

By | Published on Friday 16 August 2013

O’Doherty has been steadily mastering his unique style since first performing at the Fringe in 1999, and now has his comic timing down to an art. His abilities on the tiny keyboard are unparalleled (probably) and he incorporates his songs into the show beautifully, all with an air of confident relaxation. This new hour-long set is filled with hilarious observations on the state of our lives and all possible things wrong with them; the loss of innocence, various technological troubles and Lance Armstrong. A packed Pleasance One, a great atmosphere and whimsical humor that kept the crowd laughing the whole way through; in essence, a brilliant show.

Pleasance Courtyard, until 25 Aug (not 12), 7.20pm.
