Our last "from the fringe" Show - Billy chats to John O'Brien aka Obie!
Obie has been on the circuit for 20 years in Scotland. He headlines gigs all over the country and has performed shows all over the world including Australia, Germany and Ireland. His shows are filled with surreal journeys, observations and a bit of philosophy of life. As well as having brilliant material Obie can easily change gears and go off on a riff and react rapidly to what’s going on in the room.
Obie headlines gigs for a number of clubs around the country and abroad. A list of these clubs include:- Yesbar Comedy Club, Cross my laugh comedy, The Monkey Barrel, Lady Shona Comedy and many more.
Obie has also headlined gigs around Europe including Nutty Annitas in Amsterdam and Cosmic comedy in Berlin.
As well as being a regular headliner around these clubs Obie is a very competent compere and easily sets up a room well for other comics. Obie has also been touring solo shows for 12 years and has build up a regular audience at the Edinburgh festival. He has also regularly performs solo shows around the country and as far away as Australia.
Outside of performing comedy Obie also runs comedy workshops where he not only teaches people how to perform and write stand up, he also helps them with skills that help improve confidence in every day life.
An unusual skill Obie has is that he has a trained memory which when applied he can memorise a pack of shuffled cards. He teaches these skills in workshops for the public and businesses.
