is an award-winning stand-up comedian, musician and writer. His distinctive voice and alternative credentials have set him apart and allowed him to carve out a unique place in the comedy world.
He has performed in over a dozen different countries, and is at home performing to rowdy weekend comedy clubs as much as to his own cult following..
He is author of the book A History Of Heavy Metal, described by living legend Alan Moore as
"A comprehensive landmark analysis of an enormous area of music that has been too long without such a thing, and has the massive advantage of the funny being turned up to twelve. A loud and thoroughly engrossing love-story."
TV credits include Never Mind The Buzzcocks, Saxondale, 50 Years Of Rock Excess, The Blame Game, Spicks and Specks and Good News Week. His own Radio 4 stand-up show Pharmacist Baffler won an award.
A natural fit at music festivals, he has performed stand-up at Glastonbury, Download, Leeds and Reading, Bloodstock, Latitude, V-Fest and supported Amanda Palmer, Les Claypool and once even the Kaiser Chiefs at the London Palladium.
He is a founder member of the Victorian-obsessed punk band The Men That Will Not Be Blamed For Nothing, whose distinctive anachro-punk gained a cult following and besmirched the stages of music festivals worldwide.
O'Neill has written and toured a shit-tonne of solo comedy shows, including Occult Comedian, Winston Churchill Was Jack The Ripper, MINDSPIDERS, Alternative, Andrew O'Neill is Easily Distracted and the current Andrew O'Neill's Black Magick Fun Hour.
Dave Green has been doing stand-up comedy since 2011. Since then his surreal one liners and deadpan delivery have fast proved popular with audiences and promoters alike. In 2013 he won the wild card vote in the BBC New Comedy Award securing him a place in the semi final which was broadcast on BBC Radio 2. In 2014 he was nominated by a panel of industry professionals to take part in the Leicester Mercury Comedian of the Year. He is also a finalist in the Leicester Square New Comedian 2012 and is the winner of the Comedy Knights Fresh Comedian 2014.
