The man known as the ‘Aldi Enya’, David O’Doherty is back at Manchester’s Albert Hall with his trusty casio and a song in his heart. As seen on BBC2’s Live at the Apollo (see clip below) and Channel 4’s 8 Out of 10 Cats Does Countdown, O’Doherty is a comedic polymath who has written several books and composed two plays as well as create short, sharp and hilarious songs for his sit down stand-up. He regards himself as “a failed jazz musician, scrambling about for something else to do with his life”, and in such failing we get the winning feeling of watching him perform. One of the greats in as grand a setting as you’ll see a comedy show.
