GLAMAZON: Martha O'Neill

GLAM! was honoured to have Martha O'Neill join the legions of GLAMAZONS who represent Glamour, Power and Humour.

From Martha's website

Martha O’Neill’s wry, often edgy comedy is at odds with her laid-back, likeable stage presence; a combination which has made her an audience favourite wherever she performs.

This Toronto native spent the first 10 years of her comedy career performing improv and sketch. She is a graduate of the Second City’s Conservatory programme and is a former mainstage cast member at the Bad Dog Theatre. Shifting her focus to stand up four years ago, however, Martha has found her true calling. She has performed all over Canada and as far away as Dublin and London. Television appearances include “The Mom Show” and “’Til Debt Do Us Part”, both on the Slice Network. In 2007, Martha was a semi-finalist in Q-107’s “Funniest Person with a Day Job” competition. Most recently, she was nominated for a 2009 Canadian Comedy Award for “Best Stand Up Newcomer”.

On a personal note, she is proud to announce that she has recently mastered revolving doors. Through years of practice and trial and error she can now exit malls with virtually no problem. Like comedy, it's all about the timing. Escalators are next! Wish her luck.

First GLAM! Performance: August 10th, 2010
