Dylan MoranOff the Hook
Dylan Moran, star and creator of ABC TV’s ‘Black Books’ is back in Australia with a brand new show, ‘Off the Hook’.

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, 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. Labelled ‘The Oscar Wilde of comedy’, Dylan is unpredictable, bizarre, elegiac, often cruel but above all painfully funny. Moran sees through the joys and disappointments of human existence with the sensibility and intense perception of a man teetering on the edge. He chews life up and coughs it out…His big screen appearances have included ‘Run Fat Boy Run’, ‘Shaun Of The Dead’ and ‘Calvary’. For any lover of comedy, this is the must see show of 2015. Don’t miss Dylan Moran on his ‘Off the Hook’ tour this July and August. Hurry, he will sell out!
