What a rubbish year. Seriously. The recession, the earthquakes, revolutions crushed by tyrants, and David has been punched in the face twice by strangers on the street for no reason. Plus he had a mouse in his house. And then recently the screen on his phone smashed and now they want €100 to fix it. It's enough to bring a lesser person down. It's enough to bring David down. But he has managed to write some jokes about it.
David has spent the year touring and writing and doing bits for British and US television. In November his latest book, 100 Facts About Sharks, co-written with Claudia O'Doherty and Mike Ahern was published worldwide. In November he recorded his latest CD 'We Are Not The Champions' in Dublin. In February he became the first Irish comedian to record his own Comedy Central TV Special in America.
David O'Doherty presents an hour of talking, songs and a movie proposal for New Zealand. He is terribly excited to be coming back.
