"I was fortunate enough to attend a corporate event recently organised by a valued client of mine, and I was truly delighted with your performance.  As a fan of stand-up comedy, I have been to many comedy shows, but I have rarely seen a performer with your quick-fire comedic skills.  I think you pitched your performance to the room with precision.  You were the highlight of the evening. It's a welcome change to see such intelligent material delivered with gracious style and an unwavering depth of professionalism."

A wondrous array of classy gags. Comedy scholars, plus folk needing a right good laugh, can choose from a wide range of quality Moloney originals. Take your pick from droll one-liners; coruscating bits of political satire, absurdist observations; gleeful schoolboy puns and observant re-interpretations of everyday phenomena. In addition, they're all delivered with a measured dryness and quiet understatement, too. Masterly.

Moloney's comedy is in defiance of the trend towards sophistication. His technology consists of a microphone and¦.that's it. His gags are stripped down and rapid, his delivery is suitably clipped. No fat on this show.
