Glaswegian comic Bruce Morton came onto the comedy scene in 1988, winning the first ever So You Think You're Funny? new act competition at the Edinburgh Fringe. He was also one of the founders of the Funny Farm Comedy Collective in 1989, which helped start the stand-up scene in Scotland.
In 1992, he was nominated for the Perrier award for his show Sun and the following year landed his own four-part Channel 4 series, of the same name, each episode comprising a stand-up routine loosely themed around one of the deadly sins.
Morton returned to Channel 4 in 1995 as part of the broadcaster’s themed Pot Night, when he explored Amsterdam's cannabis cafés for the documentary Amsterdam By Night.
He is turned playwright in 1998’ with Blood Below the Window, which he also performed at the Traverse Theatre, Edinburgh; and in 2001 he co-wrote the musical comedy Wake Me Up In The Year 2001 for the Pavilion Theatre, Glasgow.
Morton is also a regular radio voice, and in 2006 presented a series of interviews with fellow stand-ups on Radio Scotland, called Comic To Comic.
A good smooth comic, recommended.
Bruce was the main act at Eden Court Theatre Inverness on the 24th. He was "happy" to be in Inverness and it showed! with the years of experience how to work his audience and deliver amusing anecdotes with ease. Bruce along with support played a unique gig. They proved you don't have to use an expletive every second word, when telling an anecdote.
A true pioneer, stage and TV peer of Bill Hicks, Frank Skinner and Lily Savage to name a diverse few. His observational surrealism is the gourmet pasta dish to Russell Brand's supermarket-own-make-spaghetti-hoops.
A veteran of the circuit, and one of the first inspirations, as far I'm concerned, when it comes to modern British surrealist comedy
Highly experienced as a compere, headliner and even teacher of standup comedy, Bruce Morton is a top-notch comedian. Saw him play the Stand during last year's Edinburgh Festival. I admit I got lost when he veered into absurdity but his send-up of Robert Burns was hilarious and he knew how to work the audience and get them right on his side. I think he should include more satire in his act, as I've seen him do that in other gigs and he's very strong with it.
