Have your say

A brand new show of stand-up theatre from one of our finest comic story-tellers comes to the Waterside Theatre this Saturday, April 20.

Owen O’Neill, comedian, actor, playwright, poet, star of hit Edinburgh Fringe productions, ‘Twelve Angry Men’, ‘One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest’, and ‘The Odd Couple’ is, as far as we know, the only comedian alive to have been struck by lightning! Whilst robbing the nuns’ orchard, Owen’s school uniform was burned to shreds and the apples down to his Wellingtons were stewed. He glowed in the dark for two weeks, developed a stammer - and a firm belief that he was indestructible.

Owen 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”. He has won several awards for these shows, including a Perrier 

Owen O’Neill will be at the Waterside Theatre this Saturday, April 20. Tickets, priced £12, are on sale from the Box Office on: 71 314000 or online at: www.watersidetheatre.com
