“In his heightened ideas and vocabulary, Moran compulsively swerves clichés as he builds up layers of laughs…funny and fascinating, and utterly deserving of his place in the modern classics.”
– The Times (Four Stars)
“His comedy takes on an existential dimension, as tubby, nicotine-starved, emasculated Moran comes to represent the struggles we all wage for meaning and connection.”
– The Guardian (Four Stars)
“Trumping Shakespeare, he reduces life to four ages: ‘Child, failure, old and dead.’ Faced with one-liners as killing as that the world suddenly seems better a place.”
– The Telegraph (Four Stars)
“High-octane riffs from the Irish master of grumpiness…spellbinding.”
–Evening Standard (Four Stars)
