SEIZE THE DAVID O’DOHERTY
+ TONY LAW
Life is a marathon, not a sprint. But it’s a sort of marathon that you have to sprint. And there are hurdles and weights to lift. And cycling and archery. Life is basically The Olympics, but at the end you don’t get a medal, you die.
It got a bit bleak there, last winter. Oh you know, things happen and you get stuck in a bit of a hole. So this is a show about trying to cheer yourself up. To figure out the things that make you smile and laugh, and now everything is grand.
It has songs and talking and bicycle repair, and some actual sex tips from an actual book.
