In his critically-acclaimed show devoted to the Star Man, Jack Docherty, the BAFTA award-winning star of Scot Squad and Absolutely, takes audiences on a journey through topics of first love, hedonism, mortality and why you should always meet your heroes.

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. 

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 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.

“It is simply impossible not to love what he does on a stage’ – The Scotsman

“Extremely enjoyable piece about his connection with late, great starman” – The Evening Standard

“This show truly showcases Jack’s ability as a performer and story-teller, engaging with his audience from start to finish” – Edinburgh Evening News

“Docherty’s mighty presence fills the room… a superbly delivered, autobiographical coming-of-age story” – Three Weeks

“A love letter to creativity, to music and to the teenagers we all once were” – Entertainment Now
