Spotlight: Dylan Moran

Comic Genius From Across the Pond

Spotlight: Dylan Moran

Being raised in England, I inherited the predictable dry, sarcastic humor trait so it comes to no surprise that I adore, the Irish comedian, Dylan Moran and am ecstatic that he is coming to Austin! Now how do I describe him to you all that are unfamiliar with his work so that you can bask in excitement with me?

Moran’s stand-up comedy is a concoction of a few ingredients: keenly observant life anecdotes, surreal verbal journeys, and witty but charming conversation. Moran has been known to talk about the “big picture” items such as meaning of life, love, relationships, religion, politics but the deep enjoyment comes from relating to every thought that crosses his mind; secretly, we have all had them. Moran emulates conservations that the audience would have with only close friends and family; there is no thread of predictable jokes but a flow of vibrant remarks and honest rants.

Now if the above description has not convinced you that it is worth your time to come out to see this outstanding performer with a glass of wine in hand and stomach for wit, then I ask you to spend a few minutes watching the video attached for sometimes it helps to just get a taste!

Come lose yourself in laughter (who doesn’t love to laugh?) on an otherwise routine October weekday evening!

Event Details: Dylan Moran, Yeah Year Tour, at Stateside at the Paramount at 8pm on Oct 22 & 23. Advance tickets available online.
