O Doherty Tops Bill for Galway Arts Fest!

June 28, 2011

The distinctly off-kilter, crown prince of Irish comedy David O’Doherty will perform at the Town Hall Theatre on Tues 19 July (11pm) as part of this year’s Galway Arts Festival and will also appear in a lunchtime slot next day in Gerry Mallons Laughter Loft at the King’s Head. Armed with his trusty keyboard, a head full of ideas and a heart full of bubbles this multi award-winning comic has wowed audiences from Melbourne to Montreal. A regular panelist/presenter on BBC’s ‘‘Never Mind The Buzzcocks’‘, David is a man not to be missed! For tickets and more info, visit
