Bristol Comedy Garden 2014: David O'Doherty, Henning Wehn, Josh Widdicombe, Ed Gamble
Bristol Comedy Garden returns to the tranquil lawns of Queen Square for 5 days of comedy goodness in the Big Top.
Irish star David O'Doherty headlines the first night of Bristol Comedy Garden. Armed with a giant talent (and tiny keyboard) the Never Mind The Buzzocks and 8 Out Of 10 Cats regular will bring joyous lo-fi hilarity to the Big Top.
'Hilarious. The cult of David O'Doherty is firmly established' - The Metro
Joining David is self-styled German Comedy ambassador Henning When, 'The Last Leg' & Mock The Week regular Josh Widdicombe and award-winning Ed Gamble as host.
Please note that the artists appearing may be subject to change.
David O’Doherty was the recipient of the 2008 Edinburgh Comedy Award (formerly The Perrier Award) at The Edinburgh Fringe. His latest book, 100 Facts About Sharks, co-written with Claudia O’Doherty and Mike Ahern was published by Random House, and his album We Are Not The Champions was released in May 2013. In February 2012 he became the first Irish comedian to record a Comedy Central TV Special in America.
David regularly appears on TV shows such as QI, Never Mind The Buzzcocks and Have I Got News For You.
'A national treasure' (The Irish Times)
'Not everyone's cup of tea' (The Irish Times).

The self-styled 'German Comedy Ambassador in London', Henning Wehn is a regular guest on the British comedy television programme 'FAQ U' and has appeared on the BBC Radio 5 Live radio show 'Fighting Talk ', where he is 'in it, to win it', as well as two appearances on Radio 4's 'The Unbelievable Truth'.
Wehn's act plays upon the prevailing post-war stereotype of Germans; a large part of his routine is based around comprehensively analyzing and explaining his punchlines and jokes in the smallest detail.
'A diplomatic master class' (The Scotsman)
'Brought the audience to its knees' (The Daily Telegraph)
'Marvellous' (The Guardian).
