Andrew O'Neill

Andrew O'Neill isn't your usual stand-up comedian. Yes, he tells jokes. Yes, he makes you laugh. But he does it all with an innate sense of absurdism and silliness, and proudly displays one of the most inventive comic minds around today. Why tell a joke when you can sing it? Why not tell the masses about the celebrities who live in London’s sewer system? Why not pepper your performance with increasingly funny and bizarre non-sequiteurs?

Highly inventive and extremely funny, Andrew has risen like warm air in a comparatively cold room ever since his debut in 2002. He’s done primetime comedy with Steve Coogan, dabbled in reality TV, and had dozens of sketches broadcast on Radio 1.

His debut solo show ‘Winston Churchill was Jack The Ripper’ grafted his surreal comedy onto ‘diligently researched’ fact, creating a piece of comedy that was ‘bloody entertaining’ and a sell-out show at the Edinburgh Fringe.

Andrew is currently working on various treatments for television and radio, a non-fiction book about the occult and putting together a compilation of his travel writings.
