Moran first came to public attention when he won Channel 4’s SO YOU THINK YOU’RE FUNNY, followed three years later by the PERRIER AWARD. Since those early stand-up beginnings Moran has had huge success as both a writer and a performer. The SIMON NYE comedy, HOW DO YOU WANT ME established him as a serious acting talent. Three series of the channel 4’s sitcom BLACK BOOKS followed winning him a Bafta and a Bronze Rose of Montreux before MORAN turned his back on the huge financial incentives for a further series and lay grumpy Bernard and witless assistant Mani to rest.
MORAN‘S film career has included the smash hit ‘Rom-Com-Zom’ SHAUN OF THE DEAD alongside SIMON PEGG, THE ACTORS opposite MICHAEL CAINE and MICHAEL GAMBON. NOTTING HILL and MICHAEL WINTERBOTTOM’S A COCK AND BULL STORY. MORAN teamed-up with PEGG once again to star in DAVID SCHWIMMER’S directorial debut RUN FAT BOY RUN.
