Mick to do the trick at GP Run

Comedian Mick Molloy will be the celebrity guest at the MRA Cranbourne GP Run.

COMEDIAN Mick Molloy will be sure to bring plenty of laughs and entertainment to Saturday’s MRA Cranbourne GP Run.
One of Australia’s most recognisable and much-loved comedians will be the celebrity guest at this year’s event.
Mick will be waving riders off from a cherry picker at High Street at 10am.
Mick said he was a motorbike enthusiast and a fan of the Australian Motorcycle Grand Prix.
“This event is the jewel in the crown of Victoria’s big events,” he said.
“I enjoy it so much, I’m thinking of entering – and having done a hot lap on the back of a bike with Mick Doohan last year, I reckon I’m pretty much qualified as a MotoGP rider.”
Mick is an actor, writer and producer with the scruffy appeal of a laid-back larrikin and has become a major drawcard with audiences across television, film and radio.
He is particularly well-known for his success with the radio phenomenon Martin/Molloy, which he co-hosted with Tony Martin. The show was broadcast on 54 stations nationwide and is still one of the most successful programs in the country – revolutionising the importance of the drive time slot in Australian radio.
Currently, Mick co-hosts the channel 10 AFL football comedy program Before The Game and presents the Triple M breakfast show The Hot Breakfast, with Eddie McGuire and Luke Darcy.
He also regularly tours his stand up show with fellow comedians Glenn Robbins and Jeff Stilson.
Mick’s credits are extensive – he was a member of The D-Generation, a writer-performer for the legendary The Late Show on ABCTV, has made special guest appearances in the popular local TV comedy Kath and Kim, as well as a regular panellist role with The Panel.
An accomplished performer, Mick also has film credits to his name including Crackerjack and BoyTown and produced and presented The Mick Molloy Show on Channel Nine, among many other projects.
City of Casey mayor Amanda Stapledon said Mick was sure to be a feature of the event.
“We are very excited to welcome Mick to the city’s biggest annual event where he will wave off thousands of riders from High Street, Cranbourne, before they travel down to the Australian Motorcycle Grand Prix at Phillip Island,” she said.
