I saw Welsh comedian Robin Morgan headline Just the Tonic Saturday Night Comedy in London in 2019. On stage he was very pleasant and clean-cut, extremely cheeky with a big grin on his face, armed with some very quick put downs to a quick rowdy crowd but also delivering a superb routine involving a honeymoon that never was. He proved he was better than the average comic with comedy gems involving an uneventful stag night.
I saw the likeable Morgan again as a guest for Mervyn Stutter’s Pick of The Fringe at the Edinburgh Festival in August 2019. During his ten minutes, he produced witty and intelligent stories about remaining familiar to his Cardiff origins and being a youthful father.
In 2020, when the worldwide Coronavirus epidemic happened, everybody was stuck at home in lockdown and online comedy shows were in abundance. On a Friday evening in May, I tuned into Belly Laughs at Home Cardiff Online which was a comedy show which raised money for four Welsh charities and was amiably hosted by Morgan. The broadcast featured a wealth of Welsh musicians and comedy acts all paying tribute to the city of Cardiff. A friend of mine at college in Stoke in the eighties lived in Cardiff and to date, I have only been to the city once. On hearing the stories in the charity show, I will make a point of going again when lock down is over. Over £3000 was raised on the night. It was a very funny evening with amusing live chats, pre-recorded videos, stories and jokes from the likes of Kiri Pritchard McLean, Elis James, Lloyd Langford, Jenny Collier, Matt Rees, Vix Leyton, Eleri Morgan, Chris Chopping, Esyllt Sears, Mike Bubbins, Motel Concierge DJ Nathan Jones, Sianny Thomas, Morgan Rees, Tom Price, Alun Saunders, Tudur Owen, Mali Ann Rees, Catrin Stewart, Ignacio Lopez, Gareth Gwyn, Leroy Brito, Lucy Pinder, Sheep & Mash, Emma Jones & Steffan Powell and Jayde Adams.
I was delighted to see Morgan appear with Rachel Parris (standing in for Marcus Brigstocke) at the Always Be Comedy Online Tuesday Night Club that I watched In November 2020. Morgan delivered some wonderfully funny insights into married life and being a father creating lots of laughter from the online audience.
Morgan was guest compere for an Always Be Comedy socially distanced live show in December 2020. He was an amiable and engaging host with extremely quick-fire reactions and lines whilst he chatted and entertained the audience.
The comedian was also an endearing guest for MY Comedy Chats online hosted by Maureen Younger where he described his life as a comedian during lockdown.
In June 2021, compere James Gill celebrated his birthday online at Always Be Comedy Online. An amazing line up of surprise comedians including Morgan gave a no-holds-barred tribute ‘roast’ to the great man. The show was one of the funniest ninety-minutes of the year.
Morgan is a very affable comedian with a very funny act who is well worth seeing again.
