Well, I’ve been terrible about updating this puppy. But for good reason! At the end of last year, my life got crazy busy.
Firstly, I landed a dream job at a brand-spanking new radio station that serves York Region, 105.9 The Region – I’m co-hosting afternoons, 3-7pm Monday to Friday with the wonderful, funny Mike Atom AND doing “Sidekick Saturdays” (8am – 1pm & 9pm-11pm) with the lovely Kiran Patel-Shah.
On top of all this, I executive produced the first ever SheDot Festival – Toronto’s Festival of Funny Women – along with Becky Bays, Anna Gustafson and Karen O’Keefe. We had nearly 100 comedians from all over North America performing in 13 shows, plus workshops, panels… IT WAS A BLAST! I’m so grateful to everyone that was involved and humbled by the success of our inaugural Festival.
SO – this website has been as neglected as those 10 extra pounds I’d like to lose whenever I see poutine on the menu… But, I am recommitting myself to more posts and more info!
SheDot Festival 2015 is well into the planning stages, my radio job fills me with joy and I’m still performing comedy whenever I get the chance. I’ve got a number of gigs lined up – you can find them in “Fun to Be With” – I hope you come out. If you do, don’t forget to say hi. I love saying hi.
THRILLED to announce a new Festival coming to Toronto: SheDot Festival! I’m the executive producer of the Fest, and have the pleasure of co-producing with 3 other amazingly talented, passionate women (who also happen to be gifted comedians in their own right), Anna Gustafson, Becky Bays and Karen O’Keefe. The Festival will showcase the best of women in comedy performing Stand Up, Storytelling, Improv and Sketch.
Happening May 1st – 4th, 2014, SheDot Festival is truly going to be “Toronto’s Festival of Funny Women”, with a multitude of shows, with performers from far and wide, workshops and parties.

So much on the go and I couldn’t be happier about it. Between a television show I’m taping (can’t tell you about it ’til later, sorry!), a busy fall performing AND a giant project that will be announced soon I’m buzzing around like the mayor covering his tracks!
Wish I could tell you more, but show info is in “Fun to Be With”. Come catch a show. I’ll give you an awkward hug, promise.
Oh, and please, for the love of God, listen to my podcast – The Joke Merchants – I’m thrilled with all the shows we’ve done so far.
So thrilled to announce my latest project.. I’m producing and hosting a new Podcast. It’s called “The Joke Merchants with Martha O’Neill“. You can find it on the PodAlmighty Network or iTunes or just click HERE.
The first two episodes are up. The first one is me, laying out the format and introducing myself, the second features my first guest, the super-funny Ted Morris.
Hope you listen to it. Enjoy!
So I’m doing a mini-tour May 3-5th with two other comics who also happen to be Moms. We’re staring in Toronto on May 3rd at The Flying Beaver Pubaret , then May 4th doing a 2pm matinee at Greenfield’s in Ottawa, then wrapping up May 5th at The Comedy Nest in Montreal. All the details are in my “Fun To Be With” section.
In the meantime, here’s our fabo poster.
