Obie has been on the circuit for 18 years. He regularly headlines comedy clubs all over Scotland. He has also been performing solo shows in festivals from Edinburgh to Melbourne for 12 years. He is regarded as one of the most natural stand ups on the Scottish circuit with great material and delivery. He also had a great ability to go off on a tangent and make up a whole new set on the spot when working with the audience. As ell as his off the wall stand up he has an amazing trained memory which he combines with his comedy to pull off an improvised comedy routine from memorising up to 200 rando ...

Obie opened at the State last night and Christ he was good. Flair, relaxed confidence tinged with just the right amount of mania, and some kick-a**e material I hadn’t heard before. Got the room rocking from the off. Played. “ Neil Mc Farline.

Obie was by far the funnest guy i saw in the entire two weeks some comics are good writers some are good performers some have a natural ability this guy has it all… before the show even started he had the mic in his hand like he wanted to splurge out a million and one funny things to say picking up on people that had just walked in, observations about awkward audience members in the previous show were solid gold and funnier than some comics best gags, nothing overly complicated and too taxing id recommend him to a wide variety of my friends and will defiantly see him again when i get the chance 5 *****

The educational theme then continued as I attended Scottish comedian John Obrien’s (Obie’s) show about how to improve your memory. (Obie: A comedian’s Guide to Improving your Memory 4****). I met Obie on the comedy circuit a couple of years ago and I have found his work very interesting. Obie runs workshops in stand-up comedy and memory training and I have attended both and learned a great deal from them. I was intrigued as to how he would merge his comedy with a memory workshop in just an hour. Especially while stating that the audience would “improve their memory”. Could he manage this while also making the audience laugh? Yes – he did. The thing that I admired most about this set, was the excellent and expert structure of the hour. So much stand-up I have seen is haphazard or lacking in direction, but Obie with this show had a tight and perfectly crafted structure while still allowing for spontaneity, improvisation, audience banter and responding to anyone that happened ...
