‘A sparkling hour of extreme physical recklessness’

You either die an artist or you live long enough to see yourself become a stuntman. For this Edinburgh Comedy Award-nominated show, 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, Netflix), Bill O’Neill’s hugely acclaimed debut is back at ours one last time.

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.
