Dylan Moran Returns to the U.S. New Show 'GRUMBLING MUSTARD'

Dylan Moran - The star & co-writer of cult TV comedy Black Books lives up to his reputation as one of the top names in British comedy!

Regarded internationally as the premier comedian of his generation, Moran’s searing observations and sumptuous imagery, painted across a large fraying canvas with curmudgeonly 'Moranesque' brush strokes - all delivered with Dylan's renowned, shambolic charm……

“Moran is thoughtful, debonair and erudite, ambivalent and mildly embarrassed by all the attention. His comedy has the rambling feel of a free-associated yarn, but there’s a sturdy structure that keeps him moving from topic to topic. There’s more on his mind than laughs, or at least, that’s the image he projects before the punch lines fly.” NY Times

“The greatest comedian, living or dead” Le Monde

“Go enjoy the reflections of one of the masters of stand-up comedy. The star of 'Black Books' and 'Shaun of the Dead', never fails to deliver with his shambolic charm and curmudgeonly manner.” Time Out London

Editors Pick! “ Irish comedian Dylan Moran is a huge hit in his native UK, notably for his brilliant role as a cantankerous and drunk, yet lovable book shop owner in the series "Black Books." His live stand-up is where he's really making his name now though— consider yourself lucky and don't miss your chance to see one of the funniest comics on either side of the pond.” SF Bay Guardian

Critics Pick! “Known for his deadpan delivery, misanthropic tendencies and the unkempt black hair that seems to serve as an emblem for how little of a shit he gives. Moran’s observational comedy is some of the cleverest around, tossed off with a winning casualness. Moran isn’t huge here yet—but you may recognize him from the cult sitcom Black Books.” Time Out NY

“He’s glorious - with his keen intelligence and perfectly worded witticisms he'll have you clutching your sides, begging for more” LA Weekly

When award-winning Irish comedian Dylan Moran brought his critically acclaimed Off The Hook tour to North America in the fall of 2016, he not only quite handily sold out NYC’s 1500 seat theater Town Hall, but he also unleashed what I consider to be one of the finest stand-up performances I have ever seen in my 40 years on this earth. Completely riveting from the moment he set foot onstage to a gale of applause, Moran’s unique blend of self-deprecation, cynicism, absurdism, and his truly unique takes on mid-life and family life (two of the hardest subjects for a comedian to have a fresh, non-cliche´ perspectives on) had the place roaring. Since that show I have been impatient for his next trip to our side of the pond, and it looks like the wait is finally over. It was just announced that he will be bringing his show Grumbling Mustard to North America from September 19 through October 12, kicking off with a whopping five-night run at NYC’s intimate Theatre 80. Theatre 80 is a tiny 160 seat theater on St. Marks, and there literally is not a bad seat in the house.
