In a career spanning almost 30 years, Lawrence ‘The Moonman’ Mooney is widely regarded by fans and peers as one of Australia’s funniest. As a radio broadcaster, Lawrence is considered one of the best in his field. He took Triple M Brisbane’s breakfast radio show to number#1 in the market and the following year won an Australian Commercial Radio Award (ACRA) for Best Entertainment Presenter in a metro market.
No stranger to television, Lawrence is well known as the host of Dirty Laundry Live that ran for 3 seasons on ABC, as well as his work on Agony Uncles, Agony of Life and Modern Manners. Lawrence is a regular on The Back Page, as hand-picked to host a new comedy driven footy show, Up The Guts, on Fox Sports following on from Friday Night Footy.
Lawrence loves the comedy stage and there’s no doubt that’s where he does his best work. He tours the country to packed houses wherever he goes. His solo show Surely Not was nominated for The Barry Award at The Melbourne International Comedy Festival and won Best Show at The Sydney Comedy Festival. Previously, his hilarious insights earned him Best National Act at the Perth Comedy Festival and Best Comedy Act at the Melbourne Fringe Festival.
The Moonman is joined by some of his ridiculously funny friends – comedy talents you may not have heard of but rest assured, you’ll be hearing about them soon enough; they’re award-winners, they’re selling out festival shows around the country and crushing at the best comedy clubs in Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, Perth, London and now… we’re bringing them here.
