Elvis McGonagall

A deftly witty wordsmith, sharp and subversive, Elvis regularly appears on Radio 4 and made the “Hot 100” – The List magazine’s annual run-down of Scotland’s “hottest cultural contributors”.

Two series of his sitcom “Elvis McGonagall Takes A Look On The Bright Side” have been broadcast on BBC Radio 4 where he appears regularly. He’s most recently appeared on “Stand-Up Specials: Full Tartan Jacket” which was the featured Radio 4 “Comedy of the Week” podcast, as well as the documentary “My Name Is Elvis” which featured on Radio 4’s “Pick of the Week’.

A live recording of his show “One Man And His Doggerel” is available on Laughing Stock Records and two collections of his poems have been published by Burning Eye Books – “Viva Loch Lomond!” and “Complete and Utter Cult!”

Henry is a writer, poet and TV and Film producer and co-founder of the Nottingham Poetry Festival. In  2017 he was honoured with a special BAFTA for services to Television. Henry has 9 poetry collections in print and has a regular show on BBC Radio 4.

Idiosyncratic and effortlessly funny – Radio Times

Bittersweet poetry with a sublimely observant wit – Guardian

He was recently given a honorary doctorate of letters by Nottingham Trent University, another by University of Nottingham, and has had a beer and a bus named after him in Nottingham!

“Elvis McGonagall is one of my favourite poets. His poems have wit, intelligence and imagination. He performs with honesty and integrity and makes me laugh, think and feel.” – Henry Normal.
