Part of the NZ International Comedy Festival
Following a totally sold out tour last year, the creator and star of TV's ‘Black Books', Dylan Moran returns to New Zealand for a national tour.
Known for his absurd observation and unique brand of dry humour, Moran is a master of comedy, combining his talents as an actor, writer and performer to incredible effect. His stand up performances continue to pack theatres with sell out runs in Australia, the UK, New York, Los Angeles, Oslo, Stockholm, Copenhagen and Gothenburg.
MORAN is unpredictable, startling, bizarre, but above all brilliant and hilariously funny. It's important not to be fooled by this gentle Irishman's unkempt appearance, benign expression and softly spoken brogue. Watching MORAN perform is an exhilaratingly unpredictable ride. At one moment an unexpectedly long silence has the audience in nervous suspense, then, suddenly they erupt into hysterical laughter. In the words of The London Observer; "Dylan Moran makes you laugh so hard you have to put your head between your knees and gasp for air".
Effortlessly comfortable in the medium of stand-up. In this guise he takes you on an unpredictable journey that shifts fluidly from surreal fantasy to acerbic observation via linguistic gymnastics and flashes of the sublime. The effect is overwhelmingly funny and unforgettable.
