Ellen O’Reilly

Ellen O’Reilly is a musician who turned to stand up after her life went a bit topsy turvy; expect some very filthy stories, bad language and sing along joke songs that are not for the faint hearted! Described as a female mix of Bill Bailey (with slightly less ass hair) and Frankie Boyle, Ellen is sure to leave ya weeping, cringing and releasing much mirth… Might wanna put down some towels lads..

“Fearless in tackling difficult subjects with razor sharp wit” – Mark Maier, Comedian

“Brilliantly surreal at times, very confident and endearing, she has a strong connection with the audience. Her physical work is on a par with Lee Evans. Her ad libs keep the audience laughing.” – Joe Rooney, Comedian

“Pure unadulterated Ellen is very witty with a hint of filth. Completely

endearing and very funny. Her audience are always lapping it up. 10/10

would laugh at again.” – Jak Malone, Comedy Actor

“Instantly likeable, energetic and packs a punch.” – Gary Michaels,

Comedian and MC Stand Up Nights London

“Ellen brings a unique combination of irresistible Irish charm, confident

delivery and x-rated humour to the stage. Her confidence and her

unflinching determination to bring light and humour to the darkest of

subject matters make her an exciting emerging comedian and her unique

take on such a universally shared but incredibly difficult experience is well

worth any audience member’s time.” – Zoë Roberts, Creative Director of SpitLip, comedy actress and writer

“She’s fearless, frank, funny and frankly fabulous” – Guy Pratt, Musician, Comedian and Author
