Doors open 1:30pm – 2pm start
Comedy club favourite Otiz Cannelloni returns to headline this family show, featuring the legendary Andrew O’Neill, our own Nick Wills and Peter Bazely. Together they will be delivering a barrage of laughs to keep people of any age Rolling in the Aisles throughout this afternoon performance.
Otiz Cannelloni combines the illusion of magic and the wit of stand up to produce a hybrid comic creation. With a mind more suited to testing crash helmets, his performance fluctuates between sheer genius and downright stupidity. Just when you suspect he doesn’t have a clue, Cannelloni removes all doubt.
When this man is on stage the dressing room empties, as the rest of the comics rush to watch and learn from his mistakes. It’s taken years of practice to make something so simple look so difficult.
Despite various television appearances – The Stand Up Show BBC 1 – Stuff The White Rabbit BBC 2 – producers are prepared to forgive and forget, mostly forget. Still, there’s always the allotment – if it stops raining!
Voted most popular act to appear at Ludgershall’s Comedy Club ever.
“Master of Mirth and Minimalist Magic …Delightful.” TIME OUT
“A magical Wag. Bewitching.” THE GUARDIAN
“Sheer hilarity that clearly no one wanted to see end.” THE STAGE
“A laugh a minute.” THE AGE. MELBOURNE. AUSTRALIA
“Don’t we have laws against this sort of thing?” SOUTH CHINA MORNING POST
“The highlight of the night….the downbeat patter is exemplary, full of self-deprecating asides and splendidly daft one-liners.” CHORTLE
Andrew O’Neill isn’t your usual stand-up comedian. Yes, he tells jokes. Yes, he makes you laugh. But he does it all with an innate sense of absurdism and silliness, and proudly displays one of the most inventive comic minds around today. Why tell a joke when you can sing it? Why not tell the masses about the celebrities who live in London’s sewer system? Why not pepper your performance with increasingly funny and bizarre non-sequiteurs?
Highly inventive and extremely funny, Andrew has risen like warm air in a comparatively cold room ever since his debut in 2002. He’s done primetime comedy with Steve Coogan, dabbled in reality TV, and had dozens of sketches broadcast on Radio 1.
He’s been on telly a bit, (including Never Mind The Buzzcocks, and Saxondale with Steve Coogan) and lots of radio (including BBC Radio 1, Radio 4, Radio 4 Extra, and 5live) but live is where the hidden mind-control signals planted in my work are most effective.
One of the funniest comedians on the circuit at the moment… hitting new heights of comedic brilliance.
He’s got a natural optimism and love of silliness that leaves you feeling remarkably positive… a winning blend of polemic and off-beat whimsy.
One of the most entertaining, interesting and multilayered acts we’ve seen. Don’t miss a trick – go and see him now.
So funny I put him in my new TV show.
Talented, intelligent and unique. Bringing the spirit of the alternative 80s back into the comedy circuit.
Dazed & Confused
Keeping the true flame of creativity burning bright.
After placing in the finals of the 2015 Musical Comedy Awards and Golden Jester competition, Peter still isn’t happy. “…His masterful, self-deprecating, and droll tone brought tears of laughter…” (The Church Times)
Peter describes his act as a mix of songs, poems and stand-up comedy, but others simply label it a cry for help. “Distinctive stuff…” (Bruce Dessau – Beyond the Joke)
Peter sites his debut Edinburgh Fringe Show ‘Crying by a Bench’ (2014) as a critical success. The show was part Stand-up comedy and part crying, but importantly (says Peter) it was always by a bench, and therefore a success. Since then people have been laughing at him all up and down the country. From the humble intimate gigs like that one in a shipping container in Deptford, all the way up to the dizzying heights of performing in front of the Queen (cover band) at Hull County Council’s Annual Charity BBQ, he really has done it all.
This year Peter is touring a performance of some of his classic songs (the ones you know and love him for) and also exclusively revealing to his loyal fan some of his more outrageous stories from his time on the road (mostly the M1 and M25).
