A very busy person is Andrew O’Neill. Yeah, they are an award-winning comedian, but they also find time to be an accomplished musician, best-selling author, Victoriana obsessive, co-writer and star of Radio 4’s occult sitcom Damned Andrew!
Andrew describes themself as a psychedelic non-binary whirlwind, combining surrealism, polemic and good old-fashioned stagecraft to produce uniquely counter-cultural stand-up and we agree that they pretty much do what it says on the tin. We would also like to add that Andrew is funny. Very, very funny.
There’s nothing Andrew loves more than taking a new show to the Edinburgh Fringe then touring it to the faithful. This all started with ‘ Winston Churchill Was Jack The Ripper’ right up to his latest offering; ‘‘We Are Not In the Least Afraid of Ruins; We Carry a New World in Our Hearts“.
As a founder member of steampunk band The Men That Will Not Be Blamed For Nothing and author of the bestselling A History Of Heavy Metal, Andrew’s a shoe in for music festival comedy stages and Glastonbury, Download, Leeds and Reading, Bloodstock, Latitude, V-Fest have all been treated to Andrewisms and they once supported the Kaiser Chiefs!
But what about the telly, we hear you ask? Well, there’s everything from Never Mind The Buzzcocks, Saxondale, 50 Years Of Rock Excess, and Good News Week.
One of our most distinctive and original comedic performers. Andrew O’Neill is a national treasure in the making.
