Dylan Moran: ‘yeah, yeah’
Dylan Moran, star and creator of ABC TV’s ‘Black Books’ is back with a brand new show, ‘yeah yeah’. Moran’s legendary stand up rants have sold out across the world, cementing this unkempt wordsmith’s reputation as one of the foremost comics of his generation. Ageing, religion, kids, 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.
Dylan Moran recently completed a 3 month tour of Australia and New Zealand to sold out shows around the country, including the first Just For Laughs Festival at the Sydney Opera House.
Comedian: Dylan Moran
