Dylan Moran??

    I went to see Dylan Moran last night in the Opera House Cork - saw him there in 2015 and OMG we were talking about how class he was for weeks..
    Have loads of his DVDs.. love his wit..
    But last night I was so disappointed.. he seemed totally out of sorts - like in horrific DTs.. shaking all over the place and he just looked like he was about to collapse.. drinking out of a coffee cup - loading it up with ice and water.. and twas like he was trying soooo hard... but it was just a load of dribble,.. like there were a few good lines but they were diluted in the waffle..
    He says he doesn't drink - is he off it? Or did he go on the lash Fri night? Or DTs from something else?
    A mate said that she went to see him Fri night and he was class..
    To me he looked like he went on the session after the gig Fri night and didn't wake up till an hr before the gig last night..
    Just so disappointed.. was soo looking forward to it..

  • Would it be possible he had a bad flu or some such dose?




  • Has he not always had the shaky mic hand in his stand up stuff?

    yeah I guess but he was totally out of sorts... like he had brain fog.. man.... grr.. feel robbed tbh




  • I was there on Saturday night too and was wondering if he's sick. He did look like he's about to collapse, was quite late coming on stage and the break felt like ages (I could be wrong there though, I didn't time it and I stayed in my seat, so it could just seem long to me).

    He looked a bit better after the break though, whatever he did on the break clearly worked. He joked that "the doctor has been in and all", maybe that wasn't a joke at all?

    yeah.. dunno what the matter was with him.. but he was defo out of sorts.. such a pity - apparently he was grand last night.. apparently he is off the drink but i dunno.. i'd say he was joking about the doctor but none the less he admitted that he was "slow" (i think thats what he said) in the 1st half..

  • Saw him last night- in great form but not "perfect"- but then again, I'm comparing that to a DVD which would tend to be perfect.

    He was being recorded, presumably for a Christmas DVD- some excellent observations throughout the evening. Probably 1 hour 20 mins to 1.5 hours of platform time at most.

    He "rambled" a bit too much without always delivering a killer punch- considering this show has been on the road since 2018 I was expecting a "tighter" show- but it still wasn't as you described OP, so maybe it was a truly not a good evening that night for him- and last night, maybe the cameras distracted him a bit also. He did make a "joke" about the previous night not being great because of the cameras, so would be interested to hear if anyone attended on Monday night this week.
    I laughed heartily for a lot of the show though so can't really ask for more than that i guess.

    thats how I would describe the whole show we went to..

    there was something really wrong with him on our night..
    i had seem him once before and he was class then - one of us had seen him several times before and was surprised by his demeanour on this occasion... in any event, I look forward to the DVD




  • Any chance it was some quirky new style?

    If being “not funny” is a new style, I’d recommend he rethinks that idea :P




  • I remember a few years back a European friend asked me if he was sick or something, said she saw him knocking about somewhere and he was using a walking stick, looked in bad shape.

    Particulars of his health are none of our business but I would reckon he's probably not well.

    no disrespect to you or him but I think it is when we are paying money to see him perform.. i dunno what was going on with him but he looked soo strung out.. worse for wear... you get the picture i am sure.. and he alluded to this fact as well - he said after the interval "sorry.. doc has been etc.." something to that affect.. basically - acknowledging that things we not quite right with him..




  • Delighted to have a chance to see Dylan's Dr Cosmos's show in better light tonight (when we actually saw this show the poor fella was v much out of sorts)..
