Lawrence Mooney

Award-winning comedian, host of Dirty Laundry Live

The owner of one of the funniest, most comically creative minds in the business, stand-up comedian Lawrence Mooney is best known as the host of his own hilarious show, Dirty Laundry Live, on ABC TV. This edgy, irreverent, comedy panel show is in its third series and fast becoming a cult favourite.

Also an actor, writer and radio and television personality, Lawrence became familiar to ABC1 audiences through his brutal honesty and sage advice on the The Agony of Life TV series as well as featuring on It's a Date. Lawrence also co- wrote episodes of It's a Date for the first and second series.

Lawrence is one of this country's most celebrated stand-up comedians and has shared his unique view of the human condition from behind a microphone for more than 20 years.

He is now at the top of his game. He was nominated for The Barry Award at The Melbourne International Comedy Festival 2015 and winner of Best Show at The Sydney Comedy Festival 2015. Previously, his hilarious insights earned him Best National Act 2013 at the Perth Comedy Festival and Best Comedy Act 2011 at the Melbourne Fringe Festival. In 2007, he made it to the semi-final in America on NBC's Last Comic Standing.

In 2015, Lawrence's tour of Surely Not, a comedic rumination on all things familial prompted by the demise of a relative back in the UK, consistently sold out and received rave reviews.

Lawrence Mooney is known for his friendly and convivial style of banter and has a very polished performance style. Incredibly engaging and totally at home on the stage, Lawrence guarantees audiences a night full of laughs - and perhaps even a few tears.

Client testimonials

There were audible gasps for air from the audience, they couldn’t take any more sidesplitting laughter.

The Music

Lawrence Mooney once again proving himself one of our town’s most underrated masters of the form.

Sunday Age

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.

The Age

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.
