Adam Buxton’s Bug: David Bowie Special

Adam Buxton's Bug: David Bowie Special

A journey through the career of David Bowie.

A fan’s journey through selected moments in the career of an artist whose influence on modern popular culture will continue to be felt for decades.

The Bug: Bowie Special incorporates music videos, rare clips, animations and comedy in a show that like Bowie himself, is by turns inspiring, moving and hilarious – a must see for Bowie and comedy fans alike.

Bug began in April 2007 as a series of bi-monthly shows at BFI Southbank – the home of British cinema. These celebrations of global creativity in music video have since become a phenomenon, as popular and brilliant as the visual ideas which the Bug team unearths.

Host Adam Buxton is a British comedian, actor broadcaster and director who has appeared in films such as Hot Fuzz, Stardust and Son Of Rambow as well as a variety of TV shows in the UK. He has hosted Bug since its inception in 2007, including fronting the TV series on Sky Atlantic in 2012. Along with lifelong friend Joe Cornish he also is one half of award winning TV, radio and podcast duo Adam & Joe who have worked together since 1995. Since September 2015 Buxton has produced the popular The Adam Buxton Podcast.
