COMEDIAN Andrew O’Neill will be at Huntingdon Hall to answer all the questions you were afraid to ask about heavy metal.

Already nominated for Best Show at Dave’s Leicester Comedy Festival, Andrew O’Neill’s History Of Heavy Metal combines stand-up comedy with live music played on his custom Flying V guitar to paint a picture of a subculture and history that has rocked the world.

Whether you’re a committed headbanger or the type of person that wouldn’t know Napalm Death if they were squatting in your garden shed, this show is hugely funny and massively entertaining.

Performing stand-up comedy around the world for over a decade, Andrew O’Neill has appeared on Never Mind The Buzzcocks, Steve Coogan’s sitcom Saxondale, and has hosted The Metal Hammer Golden Gods Awards with Alice Cooper.

He has also played Download, Sonisphere, Bloodstock, Leeds and Reading.

Even heads that do not bang will hugely enjoy this Heavy Metal 101 by one of the world’s most original and consistently hilarious stand-up comedians.

Andrew O’Neill’s History of Heavy Metal will be at Huntingdon Hall on Saturday (June 25) at 8pm.

Tickets are £14 and available from the Box Office on 01905 611427 and online at
