Dylan Moran

“High-octane riffs from Irish master of grumpiness… spellbinding”

The great Dylan Moran is our festival headliner.

Dylan is a comedian, actor and writer who, in 1996 at the Edinburgh Fringe, became the youngest ever winner of the Perrier Award, the festival’s main price.

He went on to co-write and star in the TV series Black Books, which won two BAFTA awards. Other notable screen roles include Notting Hill, Calvary, Shaun of the Dead and Run Fatboy Run.

Moran has toured the world many times, including versions of his show as far afield as Kazakhstan, Ukraine and across the US. His last tour, Off the Hook, took in 149 dates across the globe.

Dylan is bringing to the Adriatic shore his latest and highly acclaimed show, Doctor Cosmos

“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.”
The Telegraph

“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”
The Guardian

“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”
The Times
