What's the time? It's David O'Doherty time. David O’Doherty returns with his two tiny keyboards and a chair to once again dazzle audiences at this year’s NZ International Comedy Festival 2008.

So hang on to your minds New Zealand! The viscount of rumpled whimsy, the marble fawn of tiny keyboard based musical comedy is coming. He was here in 2006 and it went pretty well, so he has come back to see if anyone remembers.

Were you aware of some of the facts of O’Doherty? Such as he was born twelve days before Tiger Woods? He shares his name with a mathematician, a violinist and one of Australia's top barristers? If David had been born a girl he would have been called Bridget and that he has an excellent rapport with most pets?

Other than those important bits of information, there’s also trivial information. He has been very busy since his last visit, with trips to festivals in Montreal, Melbourne, Prague, Edinburgh, a tour around America with Demetri Martin and his own late night TV show on Irish television, The Modest Adventures of David O’Doherty.

There will be some sitting, there will be some standing, there will be those small keyboards and a chair and there will be a song called “Bangin”

“Can there be anything more evil than someone trying their damndest to give musical comedy a good name? Dublin's David O'Doherty not only attempts this malevolent feat, but succeeds to the point of very nearly elevating this stand-up subgenre to true art.” - The Scotsman
