Nothing But is a tender, playful, darkly comic tale in which Jack grapples with lost youth, infatuation, fatherhood, sex, secrets and truth.

Jack Docherty started his career at the Edinburgh Festival in the 1980s and was twice shortlisted for the Perrier Award. He then went on to write for Spitting Image, Alas Smith and Jones, The Lenny Henry Show, Vic Reeves’ Big Night Out and many others. He has also appeared in The Comic Strip, Red Dwarf and Have I Got News For You and provided the voice for Aardman’s Oscar nominated short film Humdrum.

As well as being Britain’s first five nights-a-week talk show host on Channel 5’s The Jack Docherty Show he wrote and starred in the BBC2 sitcom The Creatives, wrote and produced Model, Actress, Whatever (the Rankin directed Channel 4 film), and was the lead in Sky One’s sci-fi comedy drama The Strangerers.

Jack’s more recent work includes the RTS Award-winning comedy Scotland In A Day for Channel 4, producing the BBC Scotland film No Holds Bard, writing the BBC2 sitcom The Cup and producing two series of BBC1 sitcom Old Guys.

Nothing But is Jack’s highly anticipated return to live performing. The tour will visit Dundee Rep on Sunday, March 27 and Websters Memorial Theatre in Arbroath on Sunday, April 17.
