'I can’t do this at Jongleurs,’ says Andrew O’Neill as he cracks a gag about Lars Ulrich. His History of Heavy Metal is not, it must be said, a show that aims for the widest possible constituency. Although more accessible than it could have been, the strength comes in playing the niche who know that Ulrich is Metallica’s drummer.

After a run in a typically artsy Edinburgh Fringe venue, O’Neill has now come to a rock venue, The Garage in North London, and brought with him the death metal band Reprisal, who provide backing for some of the gags and do a brief set after the comedy. The vibe is definitely closer to music gig than a stand-up one: the audience are standing, and some happy to chat or even repeatedly holler the name of their favourite band. Mind you, there’s nothing like a heckle-put down delivered with screeching intensity and squealing guitars to put someone in their place.' Chortle Magazine
