Following rave reviews and a sell-out run at Edinburgh Festival Fringe, Jack Docherty, the BAFTA award-winning star of Scot Squad and Absolutely, is taking his critically-acclaimed show David Bowie & Me: Parallel Lives on tour. One of the top reviewed shows at 2023’s Fringe, Jack Docherty will tour the show around Scotland this spring, including stops in Aberdeen and Inverness.

Plus, the comic will perform a limited run at London’s Soho Theatre from May 7-11 bringing the show to the city’s most vibrant comedy stage for the first time.

Jack’s love of Bowie and the time spent with his hero on The Jack Docherty Show in 1997 kicks off an emotionally driven journey of comedy as he takes fans on a hilarious trip through the inner workings of his masterful mind, from families to teenage years, AI to culture wars, first love, hedonism, mortality and why you should always meet your heroes.

Perfecting his craft as a sketch comic, chat-show host, writer, author, actor and presenter, David Bowie & Me showcases Jack Docherty at his very best, as the ultimate storyteller.

Jack Docherty said, “I can’t tell you how much fun I had doing this show at the festival and I can’t wait to take it round Scotland.”

Recently announced to be returning to his beloved role of The Chief, with a new Scot Squad spin off centred solely around fan-favourite character Chief Cameron Miekelson, Jack Docherty has spent four decades making audiences across the UK laugh. From his work on Channel 4’s cult comedy sketch show Absolutely in the late 80s, to hugely successful runs at Edinburgh Festival Fringe, the BAFTA Scotland winner is one of the UK’s finest performers.

Tickets are on sale now for Jack Docherty in David Bowie & Me: Parallel Lives which play Aberdeen's Tivoli Theatre on April 24 and Eden Court Inverness on May 24.
