“It is good to know there is still room for a stand-up comedian as gifted and unpretentious as John Moloney” – say The Times, and they’re not wrong, as John brings his brilliant, insightful and utterly funny comedic intelligence to bear on a wide range of topics, at a level that has rightly seen him become a household name with appearances on The Stand Up Show and the most recent series of Grumpy Old Men. He was included in Channel 4’s One Hundred Greatest Stand Ups”and his comedic talent has led him to write for fellow comedians Harry Hill, Jack Dee and Joe Pasquale.
