The Amazing Banana Brothers

By Bill O’Neill & His Brother Wed 3 - Sat 13 Jan 60 minutes
Time Out
Two daredevil brothers attempt the impossible – slipping on 1000 banana peels.

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. Returning after sell out runs at Edinburgh Fringe and ours in 2023.

‘Joyously bizarre and bewilderingly funny’
★★★★★ Time Out

Directed by the Edinburgh Comedy Award-winning Natalie Palamides (Nate, Netflix), 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.
