Presented by the Ipswich Civic Centre… 

Fat funny man Dave O’Neil is taking his brand new stand-up show, Overweight Lightweight on the road after playing to sold out audiences across the Melbourne International Comedy Festival receiving spectacular reviews. Dave will be joined by his friend and regular on The Debrief podcast, Brad Oakes (Hey Hey it’s Saturday, Comedy Company) for what will be a night of laughs with two of Australia’s longest working comedians.

Bonus opportunity for local aspiring comedians to attend a masterclass conducted by Brad Oakes. Details below.

Dave O’Neil

Dave O’Neil may call himself a lightweight, but with over 30 years of experience, his cheeky brand of humour has made him one of Australia’s most loved comedians. With years of breakfast radio on Nova, frequent appearances on Spicks and Specks, a bunch of podcasts (including Somehow Related with Glenn Robbins and The Junkees with Kitty Flanagan) and a reputation for taking any corporate gig he is offered, it takes a lot to throw this comedian off his game.

One of our most accomplished stand-ups.– The Age

“Put simply, Dave O’Neil is a heavyweight comedian of the highest order.” – ★★★★ Theatre Matters

He’s fat, he’s funny, he’s just here for the Haigh’s chocolate. A joyful way to spend an hour. – ★★★★★ Time Out
