Biographie

Early years
Molloy grew up in the Australian Capital Territory (ACT) before moving to Melbourne in the mid-1980s to study performing arts at the University of Melbourne, where he wrote and performed in his first live act in 1987. He attended The Peninsula School during his secondary/high school period. It was during Molloy's time at university that he met the Australian comedy troupe, The D-Generation (the future cast of The Late Show), that consisted of members who would later form Working Dog Productions; Molloy would also collaborate with members on several projects.


Television
Molloy worked with the D-Generation as a writer-performer on their 1988 Seven Network specials (he had auditioned for the D-Gen in 1986, but it wasn’t until the troupe saw him in the 1987 Melbourne University revue, Laminex on the Rocks, that they signed him up). He also worked as a writer on the ABC's The Gerry Connolly Show (1988), the Network Ten series, The Comedy Company, in its 1989 season, and, while working on the (unscreened) pilots for The Late Show for the Nine Network (1990), Molloy was a cast member of ABC TV’s The Late Show (1992–1993) as a writer/performer. As well as pairing up with Tony Martin for each episode’s introduction and the Street Interviews segment, Mick co-hosted the segments Muckrakers with Jason Stephens and Commercial Crimestoppers with Santo Cilauro, played the thick-witted assistant of stuntman Rob Sitch in Shitscared, and performed in countless sketches (he provided the voices of Sergeant Olden in The Olden Days and Chief Chromedome in Bargearse). Molloy also delivered a series of volatile rants in the Mick’s Serve part of Late Show News.

Molloy landed his own late-night TV show, The Mick Molloy Show, which premiered on the Nine Network in 1999. Planned to run for twenty episodes, it was slated by the critics and cancelled after only eight. Molloy's next involvement with television was the show, Any Given Sunday, with Nicole Livingstone, on the Nine Network in 2006. He was also involved in the 2006 Commonwealth Games coverage on the Nine Network, as a commentator for the lawn bowls events.

In 2007, Molloy filmed a pilot of The Nation, a weekly late-night news-based comedy hour on the Nine Network. The show debuted on 5 June, but struggled for ratings, attracting only 575,000 viewers nationally for its fourth show. Originally it was on Tuesdays at 9:30 pm, but was moved to Wednesdays at 10:30 pm and has been off air since the end of August 2007.

In 2008 it was announced that Molloy would replace Peter Helliar on the panel of Channel 10's Before the Game, an AFL themed show, after Helliar had discontinued his position post-2007. On the show, his views as a keen supporter of the Richmond Football Club (Tigers) were often made clear. Molloy is one of the club's more prominent supporters and as well as appearing on the Before the Game, he has in the past appeared in a club membership advertising campaigns. In June 2008, Molloy made comments on the show regarding Nicole Cornes, the wife of former Adelaide coach Graham Cornes, in which he suggested she had slept with footballer Stuart Dew. Nicole Cornes sued the Ten Network for defamation, and was awarded A$85,000 in July 2011. Molloy remained with Before the Game until it was axed at the end of the 2013 AFL season.

In 2009, Molloy starred in the sitcom The Jesters which aired on Movie Extra on Foxtel. He played a veteran comic Dave Davies who has become the manager of a group of young, rookie comedians and who has to cope with the behind-the-scenes antics of producing a comedy sketch show. A second series aired in 2011.

In February 2010 it was announced that Molloy and Eddie McGuire would be investigated by the NSW Anti-discrimination board following complaints that their on air coverage of the Vancouver Winter Olympics men's figure skating contained homophobic remarks.

In February 2014, it was announced by the Seven Network that Molloy would be joining its one-hour AFL match preview show on Saturday nights during the football season.


Radio
After writing and performing on The D-Generation Breakfast Show on the Triple M radio, from 1990 to 1992, Molloy teamed up with Tony Martin for Triple M’s Bulltwang (1990)

After The Late Show finished, Molloy developed, again with Martin, the successful Austereo radio programme, Martin/Molloy (1995–98), which produced three ARIA award winning compilation albums, The Brown Album (1995), Poop Chute (1996) and Eat Your Peas (1998). Molloy occasionally appeared with his former D-Generation cohorts on Network Ten’s The Panel (1998–2004).

Molloy hosted another radio show, Tough Love with Mick Molloy (2004–06) on Triple M alongside Robyn Butler and Richard Molloy.

In 2011, Molloy returned to radio and to Melbourne's Triple M, as a permanent member of The Hot Breakfast.
He is also appearing daily at 6:50am on Triple M Brisbane's The Grill Team.


Film
Following the cancellation of The Mick Molloy Show, Molloy returned with a video release, entitled Shonky Golf with Mick Molloy, and he directed the feature-length documentary Tackle Happy (2000). He played Kim's dad Gary Poole on Kath & Kim (2003–04) and co-starred, with David Wenham, in two Murray Whelan telemovies, Stiff and The Brush-Off (both 2004).

He has starred in three movies, Crackerjack (2002) (which he also co-wrote, receiving an AFI nomination), Tony Martin's Bad Eggs (2003), and BoyTown (2006), which, like Crackerjack, he co-wrote with his brother Richard Molloy. During production of the DVD-release for Boytown in 2007, Molloy and his long-time collaborator Tony Martin had a dispute over the proposed extra content for the DVD and the two have not worked together since. In the 2006 Australian feature film Macbeth, Molloy played Brown; it was the second time he has appeared in a production of Macbeth.

Kath Day-Knight (Jane Turner) is still living in Fountain Lakes, Melbourne, however Kel (Glenn Robbins) has become a bore after their honeymoon period, and Kim (Gina Riley) has moved back in after a divorce with Brett (Peter Rowsthorn), despite receiving marriage counselling from Marion (Marg Downey). While visiting the local pharmacy for wart remover, Kath fills out a form for a chance to win a holiday to (the fictional) "Kingdom of Papilloma", on the heel of Italy (with the real scenes being filmed in Positano). Initially asking Kel, who refuses to travel because of his fear of flying and his dedication to watching the finals of MasterChef, Kath reluctantly decides to take Kim and Sharon (Magda Szubanski) along on the trip. Coincidentally, Prue (Jane Turner) and Trude (Gina Riley) are clandestinely embarking on a holiday to Italy at the same time.

BoyTown, the greatest boyband of the eighties and the group that started the boyband phenomenon leave their terrible & bad-paying lives for one last crack at the big time. They return to the stage with slightly older fans and slightly larger pants to complete some unfinished business. These days they spend less time singing about tears, eternity, angels and their 'baby' and more time singing about divorce, shopping and picking up the kids from school & working the nearby Coles, construction site or the nearest radio station in Melbourne (with dinner).

A Magistrate named Poulgrain takes his own life in an exhaust fume-filled car but in his death-throes, he releases the hand-brake whereupon his car rolls down the road all the way into the middle of a busy shopping centre where a pair of over-zealous detectives empty their firearms into his corpse. Disgraced, the two detectives, Ben Kinnear and his best mate Mike Paddock-both members of the much-hyped Zero Tolerance Unit (ZTU), are demoted back to uniform duties. Things get worse when they pay a visit to the Magistrate's widow Eleanor and accidentally burn her house down. Things become more complicated when Julie Bale, a journalist and a former police-officer and onetime partner of Kinnear's, is arrested on a charge of blackmailing the Magistrate. Kinnear starts to smell a rat when he discovers that a computer disc was found in the dead man's car but was tampered with by persons unknown. Kinnear's boss Gillespie questions the two detectives in charge of the Poulgrain case, Wicks & Pendlebury as to what happened to the original disc. Without warning, Wicks shoots dead Gillespie and Pendlebury and then deliberately wounds himself, re-arranging the crime scene to make it appear Pendlebury fired first.

Jack Simpson is a wise-cracking, directionless layabout who works at an inner-city telemarketing firm. For years, he has been a member at the Cityside Lawn Bowls Club (in fact he has three memberships). But he has never played a single game, having only joined to get the free parking spaces from which he makes extra cash by renting them to his work-mates. But Cityside is in dire financial trouble and a greedy developer, Bernie Fowler, wants to turn it into a soul-less pokies venue. The Club President, Len, decides that all existing members must now play and Jack reluctantly has to turn up on Saturdays to take part in the bowling matches. Jack proves to be a natural player but he soon annoys and upsets the older club members with his brashness and lack of tact. Veteran player Stan, sensing that Jack only needs some guidance, both in the game and in life, takes him under his wing, trying to teach him to think of other people apart from himself.
