Desmond O’Connor (not to be confused with the chat show host) is an award winning writer, producer and performer with over twenty years' experience in cabaret, musical comedy and musical theatre. Likened in the press to a modern day Noel Coward, his work as an MC and performer in shows and festivals worldwide, combined with his work as a presenter for MTV at Bestival and The Big Chill, has secured his status on the cabaret and comedy scene.
“O’Connor is a lyrically delightful and linguistically delicious clown-faced creature who spins words like a spider spins webs.” - Richard J Thornton, Extra Extra
“Desmond O’Connor might just be the most delightful MC on any circuit anywhere. Endlessly entertaining and utterly charming.” - Kate Copstick, The Scotsman
