DOD Does Vicar Street

Published by at 5:18 pm under Blog

I went to see comedian David O’Doherty in Vicar street last night. I wasn’t sure what to expect. Rick speaks highly of him and Anto thinks he’s a comedy genius. His support act was Wilson Dixon. Apparently he’s a Country Music star from Colorado and while I may doubt the veracity of his claims, I couldn’t knock his comedy. Taking a swipe at middle America, he was funny and smart, but once he was singing his comedy songs he shone. DOD had a tough act to follow.

He needn’t have worried, of course. O’Doherty’s natural comic act was hilarious. His laid back delivery and who-gives-a-fuck attitude make his show a great success. Some of his act fell off a bit, but most of it was lapped up by a very appreciative audience, me included.

This is DOD’s first gig since his return from winning the if.comedy award in Edinburgh and, according to him, his biggest gig to date. He will only get bigger.

    I saw him at EP this year. It may have just been the fact that I had a bag of white wine on hand (yes, I did say BAG) but I really enjoyed the performance. I had seen his act on telly a few times and he was very good live, lots of different stuff I hadn’t seen as well as a rousing performance of very mild super powers.

    @Voodoo 😆 Yeah, his superpowers were, eh, something special.
