Working class Londoner, John Moloney, shares with the listeners his finely nuanced observations of life.
From encounters with feckless youths, trips to the vets and our unique pub culture, this series awakens John's finely crafted stand-up routines by bringing his vividly described characters to life.
John Moloney knew he wanted to be a stand-up from the age of 14, having seen the likes of Dave Allen and Les Dawson as a child. He started out on the comedy circuit when he was 20 and, following a brief flirtation with the education system teaching German, John still employs his linguistic skills when he performs in Hamburg and Berlin.
With strong Irish roots - John's father hailed from Tipperary and his mother from Kerry - John Moloney is also an accomplished traditional musician having won the All Ireland Fleadh when he was 14.
Starting out his comedy life as the 'angry young accordionist', John Moloney's career has gone from strength to strength winning plaudits from media and public alike for many years. He has twice won the award for Best Live Performer at the London Comedy Festival, as well as being nominated by The Comedy Store as 'Best Live Stand-Up' at The British Comedy Awards, and is acknowledged as one of the funniest comics on the circuit - which is what it's all about really!
