“One of the best things about watching live comedy is seeing a comedian get his second wind of inspiration. Sometimes an established comic suddenly finds something extra, and one of these comics is John Moloney. He’s been a headliner at top clubs like the Comedy Store for years – yet his comedy has acquired more depth, as well as an even sharper edge.”
William Cook – The Guardian.
“He shows a depth of experience and a quiet professionalism that other comedians could well learn from.”
“An excellently-paced hour of stand-up and musical whimsy – go and see this hilarious and quite unique exponent of comedy.”
“A wondrous array of classy gags. Comedy scholars, plus folk needing a right good laugh, can choose from a wide range of quality Moloney originals. Take your pick from droll one-liners; coruscating bits of political satire, absurdist observations; gleeful schoolboy puns and observant re-interpretations of everyday phenomena. In addition, they’re all delivered with a measured dryness and quiet understatement, too. Masterly.”
“Moloney’s comedy is in defiance of the trend towards sophistication. His technology consists of a microphone and….that’s it. His gags are stripped down and rapid, his delivery is suitably clipped. No fat on this show.”
THE SUNDAY TIMES
“He has the down to earth stage manner of a performer from the pre-alternative era and has perfected the art of delivering punchy routines with barely an ounce of fat. It is good to know that there is still room for a stand-up comedian as gifted and unpretentious as John Moloney.”
“He looks every bit the professional. He is. He treats the audience with compassion, tact and intelligence in a show that has strolling one-liners and relative stories. A natural rapport.”
“Good old fashioned stand up. He is acutely funny at his deadpan and beautifully bitchy best.”
“A blistering sixty minutes on life, love, celebrity, royalty and religion.”
“A powerfully funny act.”
“Has stacks of material…what used to be known as rapier wit.”
“The Master of Delicious One Liners.”
“A triumph of Quality over Hype.”
The Sydney Herald
“John Moloney is one of the most creative and professional comedians I have had the pleasure to work with – quick off the mark – John will have had the audience laughing three times in the time that it takes any other comedian to say ‘hello’… the comedy scene would be a poorer place without him. John is a firm favourite of the Comedy Store – and a firm favourite of mine.”
Don Ward – Comedy Store
