On the night after the Manchester attacks the Brighton Dome had stepped up security, making for a delay in getting everyone in to the venue.

For twenty minutes Adam Buxton warmed up anyone already seated by noting what an odd day it was and how strange the mood felt – and that feeling prevailed for the duration of his two-hour visual homage to the work of David Bowie.

This was largely because of the singer’s death, of course, and even in the many, many moments when Buxton poked fun at his idol (his pronunciation of the letter “S”, his wild 1970s interviews, the fashion) the jokes were tinged with mild sadness.

Animations, classic videos, audio and video documentaries were all deployed to bring Bowie’s astonishing artistic vision back to life; “death’s his most rubbish period so far,” Buxton quipped. The multi-media format itself conjured big laughs, stalling now and again, or with errant cursors obscuring images onscreen.

Nothing could get in the way of Buxton’s love for Bowie, though, and his knowledge outshone any potential accusations of making light of such a creative force. And you just know Bowie would’ve loved it too.
