Dylan Moran will bring his brand new highly acclaimed show, DR COSMOS, to Australia for a two-month tour starting in Wollongong on 23 October, 2019 as part of a massive international tour. Moran will once again offer his unique take on love, politics, misery and the everyday absurdities of life, all served with poetical panache from one of the finest comedians of his generation.
He last toured Australia over four years ago. The Sydney show will be part of the Just For Laughs Sydney Comedy Festival. Tickets go on sale Tuesday, 14 May at 9am.
“Trumping Shakespeare, he reduces life to four ages: “Child, failure, old, and dead”. Faced with one-liners as killing as that the world suddenly seems a better place.”
Moran has been called the Oscar Wilde of comedy and his famed style – deadpan, witty and crackpot lyricism – promises to be an unmissable journey through his interpretations of the world, swerving cliché to offer a cutting blow to our idiosyncrasies.
Dylan Moran is a comedian, actor and writer who, in 1996 at the Edinburgh Fringe, became the youngest ever winner of the Perrier Award. He went on to co-write and star in Black Books which won two BAFTAs.
“In his heightened ideas and vocabulary, Moran compulsively swerves clichés as he builds up layers of laughs… funny and fascinating, and utterly deserving of his place in the modern classics.”
Other notable screen roles include Notting Hill, Calvary, Shaun of the Dead and Run Fatboy Run. Moran has toured the world many times, including versions of his show as far afield as Kazakhstan, Ukraine and across the US. His last tour, Off the Hook, took in 149 dates across the globe.
Dylan Moran will be playing at the Royal Theatre on Friday, 25 October.
