I don't know why this man is not huge. He's certainly funnier and far more sharper than his more famous contemporaries. Saw him at the Glee in Birmingham where he had to follow Jack Dee and he wiped the floor with everyone. Absolutely hilarious and edgy stuff. His routine about the marriage feast of Cana is worth the price of admission alone. Wonderful stuff
Unwittingly bought tickets to see this guy at the Hay-on-Wye festival and was frankly bored and offended by his gut wrenchingly unfunny, long stories. Absolute rubbish.
I went to see him as the headliner at the Comedy Store and was quite frankly bored. His long, cliched, drawn out stories and well-trodden "likeable Irishman" demeanour may be good for chuckle but quickly grows tiresome. There is no edge, nothing to surprise you. Its all so predictable and safe.
I saw this man last night and what this review fails to mention is his outstanding physical comedy. His impressions of his 98 year old grandfather are worth the cost of a ticket alone.
Excellent stand up, warm, funny and likeable. Fantastic storyteller
Words are not enough to describe this awesome act, he is incredible.
Irish angst, humour and poetry that in turn splits the sides then tightens the throat - pure magic
Owen O'Neill staggers the boundaries of stand-up comedy and performance - sure to enthral audiences
Owen has a warmth and humanity, in his routines and poems which is genuinely moving. He is also extremely funny. I would urge anyone to catch one of his shows if they can.
I saw him last night in Omagh and I laughed so much my face was sore by the end of the night. Absolutely superb.
I went to see him in Kilkenny and i thought the performance [of My Son The Footballer] was very poor. If you were not interested in soccer you would not even get half the jokes, I found it boring
Owen writes personal, heartfelt, moving, and very funny performance pieces which have to be seen to be believed. Truly inspirational.
