Moran first got into stand-up comedy after watching Ardal O’Hanlon perform to less than 50 people without a microphone at the Dublin’s Comedy Cellar.

Moran decided to give it a go himself, and although he was nervous his routine was well-received. He grew in confidence and, in 1996, went on to become the one of the youngest ever winners of the prestigious Perrier Award at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.

Aged just 24, he was second youngest only to the late Irish star Sean Hughes, who won the award in 1990.

Following his success in Edinburgh, Moran become a well established fixture on the comedy circuit in Ireland, the UK and beyond. Watch some of his funniest moments on stage below.
