Owen O’Neill

Owen O’Neill is an award winning stand-up comedian, writer and actor. He made his stand-up TV debut in 1985 on Saturday Live and has since performed all over the World.

To call what he does ‘stand-up’ doesn’t do him justice. This is genuine comedy from the gut, a true original.” THE SCOTSMAN

He has guested twice on Late night with Conan O’Brien.

He is an annual visitor to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival where he has produced, directed and starred in eight one man-shows, winning a string of awards including two Fringe Firsts, the Edinburgh critics award for best comedy a Perrier nomination and the LWT award for best original one-man play.

Owen has been performing stand up comedy for twenty eight years and has performed all over the World. His speciality, outside of the comedy circuit, is the one man show, once described by Time Out as Stand-up theatre. Owen was one of the first to embrace this genre being heavily influenced by Spalding Gray and Eric Bogosian. He has won several awards for these shows including a Perrier nomination and two Fringe Firsts at The Edinburgh Festival.

He has guested on Late night with Conan O’Brien and did his own one-man run of plays at the West Beth theatre in New York, in a season of BBC America sponsored shows with the League of Gentlemen and Bill Bailey. He has also starred in his own BBC 2 special, taking over the Stand-Up show with a solo performance. His sit-com, The Fitz was aired on BBC 2 in 1999. He originally wanted it to be a cartoon, but was talked out of it by TV excecutives. He now regrets not sticking to his guns.
