Vegan comedian Andrew O'Neill headlines Sunday part of Comedy at VegfestUK Bristol

Vegan comedian Andrew O'Neill headlines Sunday part of Comedy at VegfestUK Bristol

2018-04-17 
| by Editor | Posted in VegfestUK Bristol 2018

Super-exciting news for everybody planning to visit VegfestUK Bristol at Ashton Gate this year, as rip-roaring vegan comedian Andrew O’Neill is headlining the Comedy part of the festival on Sunday evening May 27th 2018.

Andrew has headlined at many previous VegfestUK events including several of the Vegan Comedy Festivals at Brighton, and his sessions were always packed out and hugely popular. Needless to say, the organisers are absolutely chuffed to welcome Andrew back at their Bristol event this year, where the Comedy section is taking place in the intimate setting provided by one of the Lansdown Suites on Level 2 in the evenings.

 

More about Andrew O’Neill

Andrew O’Neill 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 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.
