Dylan Moran announces 2023 Australian Tour

Labeled the Oscar Wilde of comedy, Moran is best known for his unique brand of deadpan observational humour and poetic prose. He took home the coveted Perrier award in 1996, which helped to launch his decades-long career.

With his latest act, he’s got a bone to pick.

“Everybody’s very angry at politicians and they always are. But I’m angry at us, the way we’ve decided to live or what we’ve decided to put up with,” he says. He takes aim squarely at the overbearing social media companies that have come to be a fixture of our existence and our passive acceptance of the tech takeover.

“I have to talk about it because it’s so enmeshed in the fabric of everything, now that we’re all having this major reaction,” he says. “Look at the way we’ve been living. Effectively, we’ve been in a miked prison cell, all sort of communicating on Zoom or whatever… I can’t believe how docile and bovine whole populations are being with these tech realities that we’ve just accepted wholesale.”

No stranger to life on the road, Moran has dazzled fans from Köln to Kazakhstan (with the help of a trusty translator). We Got This will be his first full stand-up show since the highly acclaimed Dr Cosmos, which fans can stream online as an amuse-bouche for the upcoming shows.

Aside from his stand-up career, Moran is also known as the co-writer and star of the hit British sitcom series, Black Books, where he played a grouchy bookstore owner.

Messy-haired, nihilistic, and impossible not to love, Moran promises a joyously furious romp at his upcoming performances. Tickets are likely to sell out, so make sure you get your hands on yours as soon as you can.

Dylan Moran will bring his We Got This tour to Melbourne on April 21 and 22 2023. Pick up your tickets here
