Andrew O'Neill - Mindspiders, Whistlebinkies, Edinburgh Fringe 2014

By Laura King

You can't go wrong with a failed goth gone wrong (he's a cheerful chappy!)

Resplendent in black frock and red lippy, renaissance locks flowing, Andrew delivered an hour of sheer silliness interspersed with amusing voiceovers for unlikely products to a mic in the corner.

Comedians have indeed to diversify to earn a crust these days.

Every so often he would return to the theme of "Mindspiders" - otherwise known as headworms, those tunes we all get stuck in our heads - and try to insert some real stinkers into ours.

But mainly it was jokes and puns, often surreal, the whole way though.

It is refreshing this rising TV and radio comedy star is still humble enough to do free shows. The venue was packed to capacity and deservedly so.

Andrew, we love you!
