33 Things I Should Have Said NO To | Dave O'NeilAs Aussie as a cold beer on a hot Christmas day, Dave O’Neil and his charmingly bogan humour is a glorious reminder of the tragic hilarity of our nation.

33 Things I Should Have Said NO To is a simple premise, and one that works well. O’Neil’s audience know what to expect from the silver-tongued stand-up and he delivers.

Upstairs at Hairy Little Sista, a small stage, tacked up curtain and packed room is a reflection of the O’Neil’s style. Popular with punters, his self-deprecating humour is easy to relate to and O’Neil is perfectly awkward.

Looking like Teddy Ruxpin (only with more expletives) O’Neil recounts the 80s, 90s and today through his list of mistakes that take him from suburban teenager, to a late blooming father.

From Devo to Craig McLachlan, O’Neil never misses a beat and takes inspiration from his audience, leaving no room for hecklers. O’Neil is great fun: harmless, familiar and completely at ease with his own shortcomings.

Guaranteed to entertain, O’Neil hits the sweet spot with his special brand of suburban-chic standup.
