Dylan Moran: Off the Hook
Newcastle Tyne Theatre & Opera House
Friday 11th March 2016
Due to overwhelming demand following his recent Sell-out UK, Australian and South African dates Dylan Moran star of Black Books, Shaun of the Dead and Calvary will bring his latest show Off The Hook back to the UK for a limited run during spring 2016
Expect a master class in comedy
Moran who has been referred to as The Oscar Wilde of comedy, has recently been sharpening his deceptively rambling stand-up in unusual places including Kiev, Moscow and Kazakhstan - making him the first western comic to perform in St Petersburg.
This new show, Off The Hook, is Moran’s first stand up show for more than three years. Having received overwhelming reviews in the UK, Off The Hook is a hilarious glimpse into MORAN’S unique take on love, politics, misery and the everyday absurdities of life all delivered with poetical panache.
**** “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.”
**** “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”
**** “High-octane riffs from Irish master of grumpiness…spellbinding”
**** “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'
If you missed the must see show of 2015 be sure to catch one of these limited dates when DYLAN returns Spring 2016
