Andrew O'Neill: I Am A Rich Man And I Have Many Sons

Andrew O'Neill: I Am A Rich Man And I Have Many Sons

Posted on behalf of The Art House Gallery, Cafe & Venue
Award-winning comedian Andrew O’Neill returns with a truly magickal stand-up show that gives every audience member exactly what they want*. 

Also a song about grizzly bears running a photograph development lab.

(*within standard limits of legality, morality and reality.)


One of the most original and inventive comedians working today, Andrew O'Neill is a cult figure in the British comedy scene. In between storming headline spots at the biggest comedy clubs in the land, O'Neill has supported the Kaiser Chiefs at the London Palladium, toured with Amanda Palmer, followed Jerry Seinfeld on stage in New York, written a bestselling history of heavy metal and performed comedy at more rock festivals than you can shake a denim-clad stick at. His Radio 4 stand-up show Pharmacist Baffler won an award, his TV appearances on shows like  Never Mind The Buzzcocks, Saxondale and 50 Years Of Rock Excess have made him very slightly famous. He has an oddly high profile in Spain.

and even funnier than the misfortunes of others” Alan Moore
