David O'Doherty: Small Things
David O'Doherty, the Steely Dan of Irish comedy, returns to Edinburgh with the follow-up to his Perrier Newcomer nominated debut.
This droll keyboard-playing comedian - and undefeated Guess Who? champion - has some mildly amusing musings on God's physical bearing. But much of his work is far from divinely inspired - and only the appearance of comedy deity Basil Brush shouting 'Boom, boom' at the appropriate moments could have more clearly exposed his more obvious gags.
David is a romantic soul and sings with dryly-humorous melancholia about his past misadventures with women.
His tunes are as accomplished and pleasant on the ear as twee can be. His laid-back style and quirky songs reminded me of a minor Bill Bailey and like many of his Irish compatriots, the inspiration of Dave Allen could occasionally be felt.
Tales of growing up in Dublin are mixed with wry personal observations and populist shared experiences before a politely appreciative audience.
Small Things suggests that if we are all equal, it is because we are all subject to the same horrible vagaries of fate as woebegone O'Docherty - another idealist-cum-cynic who has turned his jaundiced soul to comedy in the hope of redemption.
But this soul does have some talent - and not just for Guess Who? - even if the show lacks excitement.
I loved it, I went twice, and I cried.
Actually, I found it hilarious and more importantly it was interesting, may go again.
I couldn't disagree with this review more. His was the most imaginative show I saw, that was in equal parts deeply funny and very moving. He's great.
The most wonderful stand-up show I have ever seen
I've seen David perform twice and he's immensely talented and funny. Go see!
