Award-winning comedian Dylan Moran is set to play a special last-minute Edinburgh warm-up gig at Exeter Northcott this summer.

The show will present a rare opportunity to see stand-up work-in-progress (and some old stuff) from the man labelled ‘the Oscar Wilde of comedy’.

Likened to Dave Allen, Dylan Moran is unpredictable, bizarre, elegiac, often cruel and painfully funny. He sees through the joys and disappointments of human existence with the sensibility and intense perception of a man teetering on the edge.

His searing observations take in religion, kids, relationships and the general absurdities of life.

Dylan Moran first came to public attention in 1993 when he won Channel 4’s So You Think You’re Funny, followed three years later by the Perrier Award.

Since those early stand-up beginnings Dylan has had huge success as both a writer and a performer.

The Simon Nye comedy How Do You Want Me established him as a serious acting talent, while three series of the Channel 4 sitcom Black Books followed, winning him a BAFTA and a Bronze Rose of Montreux.

Dylan Moran hits Exeter Northcott on August 10, 2012. Tickets are on sale now.
