5.0 out of 5 stars GENIUS. END OF DISCUSSION., 10 April 2007
This review is from: Dylan Moran: Live - Monster [DVD] (DVD)
People who have said that they didn't like this because they loved Black Books are missing the point of what good comedy is all about.

Why would any true comedy fan want a writer to carry on making the same type of show, over and over again?

There are only three, maybe four people who truly deserve the title of comic genius, and Moran is one of them.

His humor is NOT, as someone here has said, based on making fun of others or-God forbid-mocking those who's opinions differ from his own. His humour is about his own clueless stumble through life, and the stress and frustration he feels at everyday things, like we all do at times.

What sets him apart from all the others, is his wonderful, lyrical style, and the wonderful images he can conjure up in just a few words. He drinks and smokes on stage because life is too short and irritating to not allow yourself the vices you enjoy. Why try to come across as Mr Clean-And-healthy, if part of your act is based on not letting petty rules and annoying health-freaks change your behaviour?

It is hard to describe the pain-inducing laughter that his unique style and comedic delivery induce, as there is no one else around to compare him to. But if you like to watch a comedian who expresses the frustrations we feel about modern life expertly, and do it in a way that is wholly his own, then Dylan Moran will never disappoint.

An Irish comedy hero.
