Edinburgh Comedy Award winner, Live At The Apollo star, hairy Enya and firm Bristol Comedy Garden hero David O’Doherty returns to headline on the Downs. There’ll be lots of talking, some apologising and some songs on a glued together plastic keyboard from 1986.

“When a stand-up gig goes this well, you do get a sense of how religions are started”

– The Guardian

Joining David is an astounding line-up with master character comic and Taskmaster star Lolly Adefope, double Edinburgh Comedy Award winner John Kearns and the plucky scamp and Comedy Garden hero Ed Gamble as host.


This year’s special edition Comedy Garden takes place on The Downs, Bristol, BS9 1FG
