Andi Osho interview

In our regular interview spot here on the blog, we're pleased to catch up with Andi Osho and pose the following important questions...

BBC Comedy Blog, 23rd October 2010

Thanks to a spread of guests ranging from mediocre to tolerable, McIntyre's last stop on his televised tour is underwhelming. Headline act Ardal O'Hanlon peddles his usual awkward material with sloppy delivery. Canadian comic Sean Collins and Londoner Andi Osho seem to impress the audience (made up of most of the Emmerdale cast including Pauline Quirke), but would surely be hard pressed to squeeze a smirk from a crowd not already lubricated by such a clever compere. McIntyre is in Leeds for the last leg, so naturally he's tried to think of some funny things to say about the locals. He does well, picking them up on their tendency not to say "the" and also gently mocking Yorkshire folks' love of a carvery. His material isn't pioneering (at times it's pretty thin), but when he adds a silly walk and his twangy delivery, it usually comes together.

Ruth Margolis, Radio Times, 23rd October 2010

Tonight's main guest is Irish comic Ardal O'Hanlon, at whom it's still difficult to look without seeing Dougal, the simple-minded priest from Father Ted with trouble distinguishing between "small" and "far away". Jolly bemusement remains a crucial element of O'Hanlon's act, but he regularly subverts expectations with his smart and faintly surreal asides - for example, the assertion that Ryanair have now become so crafty that they're charging for emotional baggage.
