Comedy profile: Claudia O'Doherty

© Rob Greig

WHO?  A hugely charming, wonderfully offbeat Australian comic who’s been making trips to the Edinburgh Fringe since 2008.

WHAT? From soil erosion to fictional deep-sea colonies, her faux-lecture type shows have had some peculiar, amusing themes. Her latest offering, a piece of ‘upsetting theatre’, is her funniest and most ambitious yet.

WHY? She’s quickly becoming a left-field comedy favourite, having been nominated for the Foster’s Edinburgh Comedy Award earlier this year and being produced by super-trendy collective The Invisible Dot.

WHEN? See a list of Claudia's latest gigs here.
