Dylan Moran: Monster (2004) - ickleReview (DVD)

Irish stand-up comedian. So much funnier than he is in the sitcom Black Books. His delivery is quite drunken and gives the impression of being somewhat dim-witted, but his insight is remarkably intelligent.

This was shown on Channel 4 a few months ago, I think in a more edited version. I enjoyed it much more the second time round, appreciated more the subtlety of his humour. I won't recount any of his jokes here - partly because I can't remember them, but also because they rely somewhat on his delivery for their effect. Subjects of derision, though, include children, women, Americans, smoking in public places (the Irish ban thereon) and rap.

Nugget: a well constructed set, delivered in Moran's own inimitable style.
