In 2015 Dylan Moran became the fastest-selling artist in National Arts Festival history, with all three of his performances selling out in hours. He returns this time round with a brand-new show – Dr. Cosmos – which is touring to 42 UK and 32 international venues in 2019.

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. 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 cliche 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. 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.

Praise for Dylan Moran

★★★★ “High-octane riffs from Irish master of grumpiness…spellbinding” – Evening Standard
★★★★ “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.” – The Telegraph
★★★★ “His comedy takes on an existential dimension, as tubby, nicotine-starved, emasculated Moran comes to represent the struggles we all wage for meaning and connection” – The Guardian
★★★★ “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.’  – The Times

    What a disappointment. He started 20 mins late and his first half was a rambling, unfunny, disconnected set of stories that were an insult to a paying public who deserved more from a professional comedian. No idea what his 2nd half was like as I left during the interval.

    Top class, the observations of the middle aged male menopause! Very funny, an international star to grace the event and ,raise the bar for the many aspirant comedians producing shows this year. Effortless.

    The material was tireder then he looked. Asked the audience what time he started the 2nd act, threw in one more cat joke and then left! Came no where near meeting expectations

    What a load of bull dust! Don’t waste your money on this pathetic attempt at humor. We also left at the interval as we were falling asleep anyway. There are excellent shows that could easily fill the auditorium so in the mean time rather go and watch them.

    Waste of time and money. His gift with language was poorly represented by both his lack of direction and disinterest in being there. Started late, had a very long interval, and was more interested in limiting his time on stage. Wouldn’t recommend the show
