Dave O'Neil

  

Stand-up Comedian / Broadcaster / Writer / Actor

Dave O’Neil has been in the business of comedy for over 20 years and is one of Australia’s most recognisable stand-up comics, having performed at 14 Melbourne International Comedy Festivals and at dozens of comedy clubs nationally.

 

“An atmosphere some comedians would kill to be able to generate, sitting in Dave O’Neil’s audience is genuinely to feel like you’ve stumbled into a relaxed conversation among friends… there’s an engaging affability… unprepossessingly good-spirited fun.” Chortle

“One of our most accomplished stand-ups” The Age

 

As well as his stand up career, Dave is a skilled radio broadcaster, and has been a part of successful teams on Nova 100 (with Kate Langbroek and Dave Hughes), Vega 91.5/Classic Rock FM (with Sean Micallef, Denise Scott, Chrissie Swan and Ian ‘Dicko’ Dickson), and most recently on 774 ABC Radio in Melbourne.

Dave was a regular part of successful TV shows such as Spicks and Specks (he holds the honour of being the guest with the most appearances at 49) and Good News Week, and more recently in Adam Hills in Gordon St Tonight

Dave has been brushing up his trivia skills to take on the role of Team Captain in the ABC TV comedy quiz show, Tractor Monkeys, reflecting on the amazing footage housed in Aunty’s archives. Dave has also been dishing out life advice in The Agony of Life on ABC TV. 

He has written several books, including Everything Tastes Better Crumbed… and other BIG Statements, has written and acted in films (even starring alongside Eric Bana), and contributed to numerous sketch comedy shows. 

Dave’s observational humour and genuine humility has also made him a much sought after MC and corporate entertainer.  

“Dave was sensational. His material was great, he was witty, engaging and had everyone roaring with laughter.” Louise Hinsley, National Marketing Manager, PFD Food Services

“In true Aussie style, he comes across as a laidback friend… the difference is he’s so clever he can handle  any topic and gets away with everything.” Giulia Baggio, Australian Council of Trade Unions

Dave is performing his new show "Back in My Day" at the 2014 Melbourne International Comedy Festival, tickets are now available here

Also Dave will be performing 3 shows with Glenn Robbins, 'Now I'll Have to Kill You,' at the 2014 Melbourne International Comedy Festival, tickets are now available here
