Sat 04 May at 7:30pm Corn Exchange, Haddington Ages 16+ only

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 on tour.

Event Description

The comic, author, actor and writer uses his time spent with Bowie on The Jack Docherty show in 1997 as a jumping off point, to take audiences through topics from his first love, hedonism, mortality and why you should always meet your heroes. From AI to culture wars, families to teenage years, David Bowie and Me - Parallel Lives is a journey of comedy and storytelling, taking fans on a trip through the inner workings of his masterful mind.
