Dylan Moran: Dr Cosmos: The Stand Comedy Club, Edinburgh, 2018
I saw Irishman Dylan Moran’s new show Dr Cosmos at the Edinburgh Fringe in August 2018. The show featured musings on love, politics, misery and the everyday absurdities of life but was delivered with such fair and confidence that the audience could not fail to enjoy the performance. Moran likened the modern disheartening state of the world to his recollections of growing up in Ireland in the seventies. He admitted that he no longer watched the news or had time to go to trendy new restaurants with one-word names. Instead, his time was taken up with being a middle-aged father of teenagers who goes to dinner parties and thinks about the realities of his own demise. All morose material, but his muddled, chaotic delivery was sharp, observational and relentlessly funny which made for an extremely entertaining hour of comedy.
