Martha O’Neill’s wry, often edgy comedy is at odds with her laid-back, likeable stage presence; a combination which has made her an audience favourite wherever she performs.
This Toronto native spent the first 10 years of her comedy career performing Improv and Sketch, but shifted her focus to Stand Up 11 years ago and hasn’t looked back since.
She has performed all over Canada and as far away as Dublin and London. Television appearances include a Stand Up special, “No Kidding” on iChannel, “The Mom Show” on the Slice Network and “Come Dine With Me Canada” on W Network. On radio, she has been heard doing voice-overs for CBC News, contributing to BBC World Service and on Sirius/XM’s “Laugh Attack” and “Anything Goes” and was until recently, an on air personality at 105.9 The Region.
Martha was nominated for a 2009 Canadian Comedy Award for “Best Stand Up Newcomer”, has competed in both the 2010 and 2012 “World Series of Comedy” in Las Vegas and was a performer in the 2013 She Devil Comedy Festival in New York City.
Currently, she is the Executive Producer of SheDot Festival (Toronto’s Festival of Funny Women) (www.shedotfestival.com).
