In todays chat I am in awe of another great comedy musical talent. This gentleman of the Stand Up circuit has been creating tears of laughter for 4 decades.
Described as "possibly Newcastle's finest export since the famous brown ale"
I learned something knew when delving deeper into Mr Morton’s career and never knew he was one part of The Panic Brothers a very popular Duo working constantly in the 1980’s and 90’s. We hear all about their work back then and what has happened since. Reg & Richard haven’t wasted any time, they have gone on to be successes in what they do best and today we talk about Richards time working with acts like Rik Mayall, Ben Elton, Lenny Henry and Fred Macauley, and his time at the Edinburgh and Montreal Festival. The Comedy Store features as well as his TV successes and Radio Work. Just a minute with Nicholas Parsons and his own radio special In the Lounge where he talks about his passions in music.
All in all this is a fun chat and mini This is Your Life when I welcome Legend of Laughter Richard Morton.
