016: Dave O’Neil – From Captain Cocoa to Captaining Aussie Comedy

admin Leave a Comment

Chances are you’ve laughed at a Dave O’Neil joke. This is because not only is he a seasoned stand-up comedian, but dave’s been writing for Australian TV comedy shows since 1994 – television shows such as Jimeoin, The Eric Bana Show Live, Full Frontal, Totally Full Frontal, The Mick Molloy Show, The Micallef Program, and most recently Open Slather and You’re Skitting Me. Thank god his band broke up and he lost his job – the prelude to his comedy career – or Australian comedy wouldn’t be as funny.

In this School of Hard Knock Knocks podcast episode, Dave O’Neil explains why he hates being a morning person, but loves looking like a lesbian, and how his shtick has moved from ‘slacker’ to ‘suburban dad’.
