Greg Morton brings his elastic wit to the StarDome through January 21st!

Greg Morton had only two choices in schoolyard conflicts. Learn the ways of the force, or use his wit to diffuse the situation. That wit would lead to winning first prize in the, ‘So You Think You’re Funny Contest and the beginning of his career as a stand-up comic.

Greg has been described as having an "animated presence." Not surprising when you read his credentials. As a graduate of animation, Greg worked as an animator on such shows as the Scooby and Scrappy Doo Show and the New Flintstones for Hanna Barbara. His voice-over talents can be heard on such shows as Robocop and Police Academy, (the cartoon series). He has directed several Saturday morning cartoon hits including ABC's Hannerman (based on MC Hammer) and The Legend of White Fang which appeared on HBO. Finally he had found his voice. A voice he would later use to direct and voice over twenty Saturday Morning cartoons.

At the age 16, he combined his love of music with comedy skits to become Greg Morton, That Crazy DJ. A cadre of costumed characters and animated antics coaxed people onto the dance floor and became his signature style. A style dubbed by Las Vegas Magazine as completely entertaining.

In 1985 Morton ventured into the world of stand-up comedy. Since then, he has worked throughout the US, Canada, Australia, and the United Kingdom. He has opened for numerous celebrities, including Celine Dion, Dionne Warwick, and Harry Connick Jr. He has been heard on the nationally syndicated radio program, The Bob & Tom Show, and he regularly appears in Las Vegas and Atlantic City showrooms. Greg was one of the featured performers at The Just For Laughs, Comedy Festival in Montreal in summer of 2001. His two-minute rendition of the Star Wars Trilogy and his show-stopping finale of pop star impersonations,(described by many club owners as the best closer in the business), are two highlights that should not be missed. This former mobile disc jockey who used to play songs at weddings, now sings song parodies on nationally syndicated radio shows, like the Bob and Tom Show.  His song Obama Man, sung to the tune of Candy Man has racked up over 4 million hits on YouTube.
