The star of BBC Radio Wales’ The Greatest Welshman You’ve Never Heard Of, Robin Morgan, ventures north of the border to the Edinburgh Festival Fringe with his debut show Free Man, performing at Just The Tonic at The Caves from the 4th to the 28th August at 8pm. This year Robin planned to propose to his girlfriend. That didn’t happen.
Robin Morgan wants to be a free man. Free to marry his girlfriend. Free to buy a house and have children. Free to plan all of this at the age of 26 and continue to live inside his own rom-com fantasy. The only problem? It’s 2016. This is a show all about trying to live the life your parents had in a time where that isn’t possible and staying inside your own 1950’s rom-com fantasy because it just might be nicer than the reality of modern life.
Robin is one of the strongest acts to come out of the Welsh comedy scene in years and has appeared at the UK’s top comedy clubs and festivals because of it. His writing credits include working on Have I Got News For You (BBC1) The News Quiz, The Now Show (BBC Radio 4) and Breaking the News (BBC Radio Scotland). He has also previously been the warm-up act for numerous BBC Radio Wales comedy programs as well as the live broadcast of The One Show (BBC1) when it toured to Cardiff.
He boasts an impressive list of radio credits for such a new act including writing for The Leak and The Loser’s World Cup (BBC Radio Wales) as well as appearances on Tom Price’s Summer Saturdays, What’s The Story? and Jamie Owen’s Sunday Show (BBC Radio Wales). His debut sitcom The Greatest Welshman You’ve Never Heard Of debuted in early 2015.
What the press have said about Robin Morgan:
“Good, twisting lines… his urbanity is welcome and unusual.” Chortle
“A deft descriptive style with an air of control and observation becoming a man far advanced of his years. He’ll win you over within moments.” Scott Fitzgerald, Cardiff Comedy Festival
“His stand-up routine is polished and confidently delivered. The whole show is extremely entertaining with some really funny hidden gems that got the whole crowd going” Edinburgh Festivals Magazine
