Words Etc

Elvis McGonagall

Stand-up poet, comedian and broadcaster, armchair revolutionary and walking shortbread tin.

Stand-up poet, comedian and broadcaster, armchair revolutionary and walking shortbread tin, Elvis McGonagall is a sharp and subversive wordsmith who is not afraid to be plain daft.  Two series of his sitcom Elvis McGonagall Takes A Look On The Bright Side have been broadcast on BBC Radio 4; he is a regular performer at festivals, arts centres, cabaret clubs, pubs and dodgy dives and he also gigs with his band The Resurrectors who have been described as an unholy marriage of whisky-soaked, radical stand-up poetry and Caledonian punkabilly rock ‘n roll.
Elvis has been spitting his scurrilous diatribes against the powers that be since 2003. And look at the state of the world now.  So that’s 17 years of futile ranting.
