Dave O’Neil has been in comedy for over 30 years and is one of Australia’s most recognisable stand up comics, having performed at over 20 Melbourne International Comedy Festivals.

Dave has appeared on numerous Australian television shows including Hughesy, We Have A Problem, Have You Been Paying Attention?, The Project, The Yearly, Agony, Utopia, Talkin’ ‘Bout Your Generation, The Panel and The Fat. He is probably most well-known for the honour of being the guest with the most appearances on ABC TV’s ever-popular Spicks & Specks. Most recently, Dave appeared on Kitty Flanagan’s ABC sitcom Fisk playing Bob Stanley, the inept lawyer.
