ACCORDING TO The Scotsman, to call Tyrone comedian Owen O’Neill 'stand-up' "doesn't do him justice. This is genuine comedy from the gut, a true original”, as Galway will see next week.
Owen O’Neill plays the Comedy KARLnival at the Róisín Dubh on Tuesday October 2 at 8pm. Since making his stand-up TV debut in 1985 on Saturday Live, O'Neill has guested twice on Late Night with Conan O'Brien; become an annual visitor to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival where he has produced, directed, and starred in eight one man-shows; and won a string of awards including two Fringe Firsts, the Edinburgh critics award for best comedy, and the LWT award for best original one-man play.
Also on the bill is Cork comic Kevin O'Sullivan, a regular hosts and headliner in leading Dublin comedy clubs; and Michael Rice, who has played major clubs in Dublin, Barcelona, and London, and appeared at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and Vodafone Comedy Carnival.
