His videos have been featured on many websites including YouTube and have been published to DVD.
Born into poverty in England and raised as a Roman Catholic, Condell worked at a number of jobs including six years logging in Canada.
Pat Condell was born in England and raised as a Roman Catholic.He was educated in several different Church of England schools across South London; he said of this time "I found myself segregated in assembly and shunted into another room while everyone said their morning prayers. The whole pantomime seemed hollow to me even then. Once you become aware of the gulf between what people profess to believe and how they actually behave, it's hard to take any of it seriously."His father was a compulsive gambler working in a betting shop until he was sent to prison for stealing money. He then died of leukemia in prison.The family was impoverished, moving repeatedly from one rented flat to another. Condell left school at 16 and his first job was washing dishes in the revolving restaurant on top of the Post Office tower, now known as the BT Tower, in London for five shillings an hour.
Condell became a vegetarian in 1976 after watching a deer being butchered.Condell did a number of jobs including six years logging in Canada.
Condell performed alternative comedy shows during the 1980s and 1990s in the United Kingdom, his first performance on stage was at the age of 32 in a comedy sketch called Mountbatten's Plimsoll.He also wrote poetry and appeared in the Poetry Olympics at the Young Vic Theatre in 1982,which led to a job writing weekly poems for the Time Out magazine. Pat was described at the time as "a manic gimlet-eyed, crop-haired poet" in Drama: The Quarterly Theatre Review book.
He then performed on the London Alternative Comedy circuit for several years (originally under the name Eddie Zibin).He also performed at the Tunnel Club, next to the Blackwall Tunnel, where he describes the audience as a "nightmare"; bottles and glasses were thrown at him, and one person attempted to cut the microphone lead with a pair of garden shears. Condell was a performer at The Comedy Store in the Cutting Edge team,with whom he performed at the Edinburgh Fringe in 1991.That year Condell was the winner of a Time Out Comedy Award.From 1991 to 1994 he was a regular panellist on BBC Radio 1's "Loose Talk".During the mid 1990s, Condell was performing over 200 times a year. Due to the late nights and regular travelling he decided to start writing for other comedians, while still doing the occasional performance.In 1991 he performed comedy sketches at Duke of York's Theatre, which were released onto DVD as Barf Bites Back! (1991).
His 2006 stand-up show 'Faith Hope and Sanity',subtitled 'A Few Jokes About Religion Before It Kills Us All', was a platform for his comedy and atheist beliefs. "This is the first time I've set out to write a show in order to say something, rather than just as a vehicle for stand-up" he said of the show. "It seems to me that fundamentalist Christians, jihadist Muslims and settlement-building Jews are causing more than their share of trouble in the world. World events are being driven by people with apocalyptic delusions, while here in Britain a paralysing liberal guilt allows religious bigots to use intimidation and violence to stamp out free speech. If you can't get laughs out of all that, you can't get them out of anything."He performed the show at London's Etcetera Theatre.Chortle gave Condell's performance a positive review saying "His wide-ranging observational routine contains barely a dud line, which is some achievement for 40 minutes of reasonably fast-paced stuff."
He is also author of the play Barry Sorts It Out.The Financial Times gave it a negative review describing it as "a sordid East End comedy written by stand-up Pat Condell. It repeats ad nauseam the same gag, in which Barry's narrative recounts his calm, reasonable thoughts followed with a "so I..." by his crassly Neanderthal actions."
Condell has said of his humour "I used to talk about this stuff in comedy clubs until I discovered internet video. Now I get a lot more death threats, but I don't have to deal with drunks."
