Testimonials for Lawrence Mooney

Goodness, but this is a funny man. And a man so peculiarly satisfied with his lot, I don’t think he’d give a toss if I say: he wasn’t ever anywhere near as great as he has recently become.  

Helen Razer – Crikey Daily Review  ★★★★ ½

Doubled over with laughter

Herald Sun   ★★★★★

 

Mooney has a wonderfully tilted world-view.  This is a meticulous hour of comedy built on a foundation of compassion from an upbeat misanthrope. Hilarious.  -
