Andrew O'Neill: Winston Churchill Was Jack The Ripper

Andrew O'Neill: Winston Churchill Was Jack The Ripper

Show type: Edinburgh Fringe 2006

Starring: Andrew O'Neill

In 2006, a rumour started to spread around the internet. Britain's Greatest Prime Minister, Winston Churchill ­ the man who single-handedly won the Second World War by fighting the Germans on the beaches, or something ­ had a dark secret. He was also Britain's Most Notorious Serial Killer Jack The Ripper. Web sceptics (skwebtics) were unsure. Rolling news channels brought in 'experts'. But no-one called on Andrew O'Neill. Possibly because they didn't have his number.

So, in response to being shunned by the media circus, Andrew instead swore to wreak revenge on the mulletted fools, and undertook a mission to tell the world about the Churchill-Ripper phenomenon in his own words, at a time and venue to coincide with the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. Using archive footage, crackly tape recordings and a variety of hats, history will be re-written live on stage ... 23 times in one month.
