Since performing his sell-out show in '98, festival favourite, Richard has got married, become a dad, bought a flat, and pased his driving test fourth time. So forget about new material. Just kidding. He passed first time.
This very energetic comedian animates the stage from the moment he walks on, an instantly likeable chap with a warm and genuinely endearing approach.
With his cheeky image, Morton hops about like a hyperactive child with a new game, and indeed a lot of his material does stem from childhood experiences.
Yes, he does trot out some of the old favourites, such as parent-child role reversal, and doggedly sticks to his joke, joke, song, joke format, but new lyrics and topical material are very much evident throughout.
It a joy to see that a stalwart like Morton has not become complacent, but has instead spent time and effort on maintaining a fresh and tight set, delivered with relish.
And although probably not everybody's cup of tea, here is a talented entertainer who clearly excels at his craft.
