‘a joyously bizarre and bewilderingly funny show’
★★★★★ Time Out

For his Edinburgh Fringe debut, Bill O’Neill uses every trick up his sleeve to explore the oldest one in the book.

Directed by the Edinburgh Comedy Award-winning Natalie Palamides (Nate, Laid), this hilarious debut follows two daredevil brothers attempting the impossible — slipping on 1000 banana peels. Through a surreal exploration of loss, failure, masculinity and death-defying pratfalls, O’Neill challenges the limits of the human body and spirit – one banana peel at a time.

[O’Neill] evolves the time-honored comedic bit of slipping on a banana peel to performance art (on top of repeating perfectly executed, classical physical humor).’
The Comedy Bureau, The 100 Best Things in Comedy 2022

This performance is not suitable for anyone with a banana allergy.
