David O’Doherty

Fans of the Gulbenkian Theatre Podcast may recall one of our funniest phone interviews of 2009 was with keyboard-playing Irish mirth-meister David O’Doherty.

Well, the Bakery kitchen was delighted to receive an e-mail a couple of weeks back on behalf of the man himself. Apparently he’s currently embarking on his second UK tour (entitled “David O’Doh-party”) and is abstaining from offers to promote it on shit telly. The Gulbenkian Podcast meanwhile (and this is a direct quote from David) is “better than shit telly.” Would we therefore like a new interview?

And so myself and Chef Dan made our way to the next venue on David’s list – the OFS Studio,Oxford – with a carrier bag of gifts and a camera to record what happened . . .

If you’re in Canterbury, why not head to the Gulbenkian’s very purple new site and get some last minute tickets to his show on Saturday. Or visit David’s hilariously crap website to see if he’s touring near you. You won’t be disappointed, his Oxford gig was a thing of comedic wonder. And he’s a topping chap, to boot.

Cheers, David!

    Great interview! You must keep us all posted on the appearance of any of the gifts in his stage show….

    Brilliant.

    “better than shit telly” should be on the back of the t-shirts 🙂

    Who put D O D on the noticeboard?

    Good stuff guys.

    Love the little bag of goodies.

  4. Well spotted Mr. Mathias. It was indeed me who put DOD on the notice board.

    “Better than shit telly” is certainly the tagline for the Gulbenkian Podcast. Alas, out budget doesn’t stretch to new t-shirts. Maybe tippex will do the trick . . .
