I first saw David O’Doherty back in 2009 when I went to see Frank Skinner’s Credit Crunch Cabaret at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. He just did a short stand up routine, along with many other guests on the show, but he stuck in my mind because he was really funny. I wasn’t surprised when I started to see him on TV a few years later.

On Saturday my friends and I went to see David’s latest Fringe show ‘Big Time’. He appeared on stage with his little keyboard and did an hour of stand up with songs. It was a sell out show in a large venue and he talked about the fact that he was getting bigger audiences these days and some of the funny things that had happened as he became more well-known. He did it in a very self-deprecating way and I found the whole show laugh-out-loud funny.

He touched on so many different subjects including social media, sponsorship deals, shopping at Lidl, Brexit, giving up Lilt and his cousin Sammy. I loved his song ‘Celebrities Doing Mundane Things’. He also promised to fix absolutely everything in the world and he dealt really well with some cheeky hecklers, who were on a hen night.

David O’Doherty: Big Time is on every night until 28th August at the Assembly Hall at the top of the mound. Tickets are ¬£15 per person and shows are likely to sell out, so book in advance.
