Meet the magician who has held Australia under a fit of laughter for more than twenty-five years. Mick Molloy is a truly talented comedian who has consistently proven his prowess in TV, radio and film. His razor-edged wit and acid tongue go hand in hand with his genius mind and extraordinary creativity. You can see him in his true essence on stage, where he unleashed his personal brand of Aussie humor to have even the most serious crowd in stitches.
Molloy has been a performer all along. Growing up in the Australian Capital Territory, he chose to study performing arts at the University of Melbourne. It was there that he wrote and staged his first comedy act. Molloy rose to fame after he appeared in the Seven Network’s D-Gen, and then in ABC’s The Late Show. Over two decades and hundreds of TV appearances later, Molloy is a busy artist who picks and chooses his gigs. Contact us to find out about his availability for your upcoming event or production.
Armed with a spicy sense of humor and a goofy smile, Molloy amuses the audience every time he gets on stage. He is a crafty manipulator and can switch from one genre to another with masterly ease. He derives humor mainly from a chat or a dialog between two people, and is not a standup artist as such. Although he can often be caught up in production schedules and may not have time for stage events, having his name on your event list guarantees a full house. His favorite genres include observation, improvisation, and sometimes cringe, black, blue, and slapstick as well.
The real punch of this outstanding comedian lies in his script and direction. He can write, direct and produce a TV show or a live performance and also star in it, delivering excellence in every role. Like all great comedy artists tend to do, Molloy also ran into trouble when his hugely popular Mick Molloy Show was taken off the air after only eight runs. Some viewers were shocked to see an apparently drunk Molloy urinating on the set with his back to the camera. It was an unconventional experiment that showed how far Molloy could press the envelop. Regardless of the sensitivities involved, the program was hugely entertaining.
Molloy’s résumé is the envy of any comedy artist. More than two-and-a-half decades of TV and radio performances and live shows make him the household laughter man of Australia. His career path is studded with stellar performances in TV shows—The Jester, Before The Game, The Nation, Any Given Day, and Saturday Night Football are some of his most recent TV programs. He has starred in six movies, of which he has also written and produced/directed four. He has been on radio since 1990 and was recently hosting two radio programs for Triple M. His most memorable works includes the controversial yet side-splitting Mick Molloy Show, the box-office smasher Cracker Jack, and The Late Show.
