As the charismatic frontman of the UK’s hardest-working comedy band, ‘The Bar-Steward Sons of Val Doonican’, Scott Doonican is a debonair and theatrical performer with superb hair and more style than you could shake a Milan catwalk at.
As a solo performer, Scott’s one-man shows are every bit as funny, dynamic and engaging as those with his band. This is where Scott Doonican the story-teller, entertainer and showman, gets the opportunity to take the band’s extensive back-catalogue of comic-songs and perform them, stripped-back, on just his battered ‘Workhorse’ acoustic guitar or his little banjulele in his hand. Here, the Doonicans’ side-splitting song-smithery, comes to the fore, often accompanied by an abundance of cracking yarns, giving a charming insight to the inspiration behind them
So, can you trust him? To be silly, yes. To behave, hell no. Like a bus conductor standing in front of an orchestra with a spoon in one hand and a pint in the other, Scott Doonican is quite clearly here for a good time, not a long time.
