OWEN O'NEILL: THE WHOLE NINE YARNS
An evening of raucous true life stories and poetry
Hilarious emotional washing of the underwear...
The Whole Nine Yarns is a mixture of comedy storytelling and poetry, segueing smoothly between the two. Whilst some of the poems are comic, most tend towards an emotional punch. This show typifies a fundamentally Irish sensibility, juxtaposing the harrowing and the hilarious to great effect. If poetry isn’t your thing, then it will be by the end of this 70 minutes!
"To call what he does ‘Stand-up’ doesn’t do him justice. This is genuine comedy from the gut, a true original." The Scotsman
"O’Neill fills the stage with real stories from his life. This is beyond stand- up. This is an hilarious emotional washing of the underwear." The Toronto Sun
