Meryl O'Rourke

Meryl has gigged extensively across the UK, Ireland, New York and Europe. Bitterly direct with a mischievous twinkle in her eye, a potty-mouthed potty-trainer. She has delighted comedy audiences, ladies nights and even hosted pop concerts (last one to 12,000 people!).
 
Meryl performs 20-40 min sets and MCs for promoters including  Hot water, Just The Tonic, manfords, Last Laugh, Screaming Blue Murder, CKP, Crack, Banana, Hideaway,…among many others, and, in December 2010, performed a storming 20 minute set at the Hammersmith Apollo, supporting Frankie Boyle as part of his national tour 
 
A talented, and sought after, gag writer - Meryl has worked on many of the flag ship panel shows and comedy programmes for the BBC, Channel 4 and Dave.
 
Her one woman show - Meryl O’Rourke - Bad Mother…   Got a clutch of 5 star reviews
 
An accomplished radio presenter, she also wrote and performed her own comedy series for Woman’s Hour on Radio 4, The Hysterical Method of Conception.

Meryl is an experienced journalist and is currently a feature writer for Mark “Kick Ass” Millar’s new magazine CLiNT, having previously worked extensively for Time Out. She is being featured in “Stand-Up Put-Downs”, a compilation of the best heckle put downs, published by Transworld.
 
Add TV presenting to Meryl’s skills (Meryl was in the pilot and co-presented many episodes of Liquid News) and you still don’t have the complete picture! She has closed the debate at The Oxford Union, been a Marilyn Monroeagram and sings in cabaret group Shimoom.
