About this event

"Ayden Doherty is a Five Star Man." Fourth Wall Media, 2021.

Back by demand, Ayden Doherty explores life, love, and mental health in Birthday Party for a Dead Friend.

Navigating, with humor, the comorbidity of existence, "Doherty uses his skill to swoop, elegantly, from harsh nasty criticism to a place of genuine sensitivity", branded with "a tenacity and razor-sharp tongue that you must witness" OUTinPerth, 2015.

In what The Fourth Wall called "life-affirming comedy" ★★★★★ - Fourth Wall Media, 2021, Ayden takes an open and unfiltered look at living and surviving with mental health, exploring the ugly sides of our shared mental health experiences, showing why laughter is, so often, the best medicine.

Presented by:
Ayden Doherty

Doherty is a veteran of the Perth comedy scene, performing across a host of different platforms and mediums since 2010. He's one of the hottest acts to stalk the stages of comedy in Australia, not afraid to open up, take on the world around him, and "to bare his soul on stage. And that’s worth seeing" OUTinPerth, 2015.

FRINGE WORLD Weekly Comedy Award Winner 2021.
