Comedy Club of Love - March 2024

Fri 1st Mar 2024 at 7:30pm ends 10:30pm

This event has been cancelled

Due to filming commitments with the BBC that have overran, Janice Connolly can not make this event so rather than try to replace her, we are taking the difficult decision to cancel the event and get Barbara Nice back at a later date.

We will now treat our April event as the launch night featuring headliner, Jarred Christmas

As ticket holders, please notify Drew via if you would like a refund or be simply transferred over to the April event.

Thank you for understanding and apologies for any inconvenience caused.

Andrew O'Neill is an award-winning comedian, musician and best-selling writer. A psychedelic non-binary whirlwind, they combine surrealism, polemic and good old-fashioned stagecraft to produce uniquely counter-cultural stand-up.

Andrew has performed in over a dozen different countries, at over a hundred different festivals and is equally at home in rowdy comedy clubs as performing to their own cult following.

They co-wrote and starred in Radio 4’s occult sitcom Damned Andrew.

TV credits include Good Omens 2 (Summer 2023), Never Mind The Buzzcocks, Saxondale, 50 Years Of Rock Excess, The Blame Game, Spicks and Specks and Good News Week. Their own Radio 4 stand-up show Pharmacist Baffler won an award. A natural fit at music festivals, they have 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.

They are 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 critically-acclaimed 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.

Support on the night will come from up and coming talent CHRIS YATES
