Shannon O'Neill was named "One to Watch" by Time Out New York and the show itself received rave reviews from various publications.
"Her new solo show, Prison Freaks, is the most exciting crystallization of her unique, occasionally difficult, point of view to date." - Time Out New York
"Any one of these freaks could fare fairly well in any talent show. That all of these come from the same comedic mind and body is truly freaky. And laugh-out-loud funny." - TheComicsComic
"In Shannon O'Neill's "Prison Freaks: A Talent Show," the veteran UCB improviser and teacher has compiled a cavalcade of prison misfits so freakish in looks and behavior that they come full circle to funny." -The Apiary
"The show is 30 minutes of nonstop comedic genius from O'Neill...Prison Freaks showcases a wonderful medley of sketch and improvisational comedy that O'Neill has been honing for the last 10 years." - The Ticker.org
