Like the rising of the sun, the passing of the seasons and the ebb and flow of the tides, some things in this ever-changing world remain reassuringly constant. John Moloney's act is one such thing.
In a way, of course, it's testament to the quality of the gags that he can trot out the same old routine, year in, year out. And, indeed, there are plenty of brilliant lines in his set, delivered with a dispassionate, measured delivery.
But there are also a few well beyond the pensionable age. Most notably the inevitable masturbation routine which ends with the heinous 'and I got thrown out of Argos'.
This is undoubtedly the worst of an otherwise fine bunch, though, and it you haven't seen Moloney, you really ought. But if you have - however long ago - be prepared to hear the exact same well-polished set. Indeed, you might very well find yourself mentally joining in with the punchlines, like some silent comedy karaoke.
A very good comic, then, but one let down by his steadfast unwillingness to use new material.

I had the pleasure of seeing John Moloney in 2007 when he was support to Jim Davidson at the Pavillion theatre in Glasgow. He was absolutely tremendous and I would recommend that you go and see him perform. I guarantee you will not be disappointed.
John Moloney is one of the funniest acts I have ever seen.
If you haven't see John before go – he is totally brilliant . If you have seen him before don't go again, because its the same material over again
I have seen Maloney twice in the last three months - and he was brilliant. I don't understand this review - he did different stuff both times (apart from a couple of gags), and was by far the best on the bill. The guy is a star, and God only knows why he isn't more famous than he is. Peace and love John, you're a great comedian.
Very intelligent and the funiest comic i have seen in a long time. Critics go and see him now had the place in raptious laughter from start to finish
Don't rate him all that much: delivery uninspired, material not much to rave about.
John please get some new material. The first time we saw you it was amazing, but after two or three times of the same jokes it starts to get a bit boring. Please get some new stuff and prove me wrong.
