Sound & Vision

There are some vid clips on the video page on this site.

I wrote a play called Rain. It was broadcast on BBC Radio Scotland. The actors are Ford Kiernan and James Young.

It's a 28 minute black comedy with a twist. Download it here
(mp3 file 38.4mb) 

BBC Radio 7 is repeating Comic To Comic, a series of interviews I did with stand-up comics a few years back. I think Radio Scotland is also running these chats in late night slots. Don't quote me.

The fine folk at online music station Radio Magnetic carry a little music mix I made. You can hear it here.


Gesture and commentary of the highest class
The Observer

Supremely talented and imaginative
Time Out

Morton is not so much re-writing the rulebook as throwing it away
The Independent

The Herald

Devastatingly funny - wry and poignant
The Scotsman

Quite simply one of the best and most genuine humourists
The Express




The Greater Shawlands Republic is a satire cabaret run by me and by Andrew Learmonth. We seek autonomy for the southside of Glasgow.
