Dylan Moran

I went and saw Irish comedic talent Dylan Moran performing live stand-up comedy last night at the Enmore Theatre (my first visit to this venue), his first performance of a handful of shows here in Sydney. If you’re asking “who?” check out his website via the link below. He stars in UK Channel 4 comedy TV show Black Books, which is aired on ABC TV here in Australia.

Great laughs, he was very funny, but I didn’t reach that tears in my eyes, and pains in my side from laughing too much point, like at Arj Barker, although that’s probably a good thing considering all the Thai food I ate across the road at Banks Thai prior. Great Thai food at that restaurant.

Dylan Moran mentioned this was his first gig in 6 months. I liked the vibe that he was just coming up with it all on the spot, and it not being a well rehearsed, pre-planned scripted performance. Very clever guy, very funny. It did feel like he lost his way a few times during his performance though. A few nasty coughing fits didn’t help either, he really should cut back on those cigarettes, he must have smoked about 10 during his hour and half on stage.

I like his style of stand-up comedy, he’s like an outspoken, dark, bitter, witty, intellectual who is sodden drunk at a party, drawing you in with his Irish charm, telling random quotes/thoughts and stories covering a wide range of topics, and verbally meandering off in all sorts of directions. For those who have tickets, enjoy! All his Sydney dates actually sold out months ago.

More laughs in Sydney…

It’s all happening at the moment, lots of comedy on! There are 2 comedy festivals on at the same time here in Sydney over March/April!

Daniel Townes & Nick Sun

I think I might go see Nick Sun @ The Boiler Room – The Factory, this Thursday, he’s performing as part of the Cracker Comedy Festival 2007. Nick Sun was fantastic on ‘Stand Up Australia’ on the Comedy Channel (FOXTEL) last year.

More details…

Speaking of comedy. One of my favourite TV shows The Chaser’s War On Everything returns to ABC TV this Wednesday 28th March, at 9pm. There’s an article about them in the SHM today here.

If you miss it, you can always grab a video podcast of it afterwards…
