Following rave reviews and a sell-out run at Edinburgh Festival Fringe, Jack Docherty, the BAFTA award-winning star of Scot Squad and Absolutely, returns with his critically-acclaimed show devoted to the Star Man.

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, writer, author and actor, David Bowie & Me showcases Jack Docherty at his very best, as the ultimate storyteller.

Jack Docherty in David Bowie and Me: Parallel Lives is part of the Traverse's £1 Ticket Project.

The Traverse Theatre is funded by Creative Scotland and The City of Edinburgh Council.
