Dylan Moran, star of ‘Black Books’, ‘Shaun of the Dead’ and ‘Run Fatboy Run,’ is about to spread a little happiness when he returns to New Zealand with a brand new tour for 2011 Yeah, Yeah. Ageing, religion, kids and relationships intertwine with the general absurdities of life. Searing observations and sumptuous imagery, painted across a large fraying canvas with cruel, curmudgeonly 'Moranesque' brush strokes and all delivered with Dylan's renowned, shambolic charm… It's simply unmissable. This will be Dylan’s fourth New Zealand tour – the previous three were totally sold out shows, so it is advised to book early.
Perrier Award winner Moran has had huge success as both a writer and performer. He received a BAFTA and a Bronze Rose of Montreux for his TV sitcom Black Books. His film career has included the smash hit ‘Rom-Com-Zom’ Shaun of The Dead, Run Fatboy Run and A Film With Me In It. Moran’s stand up shows have sold out across the world. Throughout the US, Europe and Australasia Monster, Like Totally and What It Is have cemented this unkempt wordsmith’s reputation as one of the foremost comics of his generation earning him the label of ‘The Oscar Wilde of Comedy’
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.
Tickets on sale Friday June 10th.
