DAVID O’DOHERTY – It’s David O’Doherty Time **** (Nova 2 until Saturday, March 15, 2008)

February 28, 2008

I confess I fall easily for Irish comics. I think it is due to a childhood staple of Dave Allen. However, I am sure I can award four stars with a clean conscience, confident that David has not benefited from my bias.

It’s amazing how one man with a microphone and a tacky little keyboard can win an audience over with a small selection of discordant tunes and a few favourite gripes to share. The secret, I believe, is in how accurately he describes us to ourselves, as he¬†points out how meekly we accept the hype of modern life uncritically. When was the last time you did Laugh Out Loud when you typed LOL into an email, IM or SMS?

As audience members, we certainly did LOL often, although never to the stage of ROTFLMAO (Google it).
