Who is Greg Morton?
Known as the ultimate standup act at clubs, colleges, and theatres across the U.S., Canada, Australia, and The United Kingdom, Greg Morton has shared the stage with comedy legends, such as Dave Chappelle and Chris Rock! He has opened for Celine Dion, Dionne Warwick, Harry Connick Jr. and Luther Vandross at Radio City Music Hall in New York City. You may recognize him from his numerous television appearances on shows like Premium Blend on Comedy Central, Comics Unleashed and Comedy.tv with Byron Allen.
He is a four-time veteran of the Just for Laughs Comedy Festival in Montreal and a YouTube sensation. He is known mostly as a comedian, but he’s also an “artist, cartoonist, gamer, foodie, newsie and lover of all things Star Wars,” according to his Twitter account bio. In May 2019, he showcased his talents on the season opener of America’s Got Talent by impersonating most of the characters from the famous Star Wars franchise – “May the farce be with you,” he says. He returned to the show in mid-August with impersonations from “The Lion King”, “The Terminator”, “The Sixth Sense”, “The Godfather” and the immortal “Show me the money!” line from “Jerry Maguire”. In 2009, he reached internet fame when he hit 4 million views from his appearance on “The Bob & Tom Show;” his original tune “Obamaman” which blends the “Candyman song” with satire had a lot of viewers bent over in laughter.
Morton is a physical performer – he uses his face and body to convey his sense of humour, making it hard to hold in your laughter. He’s quick-witted, unique and hilarious. He’s the class clown you can’t help but fall in love with.
