Dylan Moran announces UK tour

DYLAN MORAN

DR COSMOS

Grand Opera House York

Sunday 4 November at 8pm

BAFTA and Perrier award winning comedian Dylan Moran embarks on his brand new tour – Dr Cosmos. Moran will 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 began his stand up in Dublin in 1992 and, although nervous, got a good reception. In 1993, he won the So You Think You’re Funny award at the Edinburgh Festival. He went on to become the youngest person to win the Perrier Comedy Award in 1996 at the Edinburgh Festival at age 24. Gurgling For Money was Moran’s first major one man stand up UK tour, and he went on to perform at many other festivals.

Moran won his first major television role in 1998 playing Ian Lyons in the BBC 2 sitcom How Do You Want Me?, with Charlotte Coleman, he went on to appear in a small role in the movie Notting Hill as Rufus the thief, followed by Black Books, the sitcom about a depressed, bitter, alcoholic, chain-smoking, and misanthropic book shop owner, Bernard Black. Shaun of the Dead was his first major film role in which he played David in the horror comedy.
