Martin comes from Northern Ireland, and after a successful career as a circus performer, he turned his attention on the unsuspecting comedy circuit.
With over 30 years experience as a professional performer, Martin has established himself as one of the UK’s most popular and in-demand comedians.
Martin has performed successfully at events of all description; from the Hammersmith Apollo to a show for the inmates of an Italian prison, from comedy clubs to performing before members of the British Royal Family.
Very much the comedian’s comedian, Martin has been the support act of choice for; Frankie Boyle, Jack Dee, Lee Evans, Jasper Carrot, Patrick Kielty, Johnny Vegas, Steve Coogan, and once Tina Turner.
Martin has numerous appearances on radio and television.
As well as devising and performing his own BBC television show, he has written jokes for some of the biggest names in British comedy.

A truly global performer, Martin has worked throughout the known world performing his shows in Britain, Ireland, Australia, USA, Croatia, Slovenia, Italy, Spain, Switzerland, Holland, Belgium, Norway, Germany, Cyprus, Crete, Falkland Islands, South Africa, United Arab Emirates, Qatar, Bahrain, Singapore, Indonesia, Thailand, Vietnam, Philippines, Cambodia, Nepal, Myanmar, Hong Kong, and Mainland China.

There is no question huge hairy Irishman Martin Mor is one of the best comperes around and the 30 years’ experience he has of performing have given him a whole raft of anecdotes to talk about.
Using a combination of these All The Best is an hour of entertainment that would be hard to better in the Fringe this, or for that matter any other, year.
Mor lights up the room with his presence, his wit, his smiling banter, and garners information and harvests belly laughs from everyone, including those he is ‘playing’ with at the time. But it is not only the audience he gags with it is often himself that is the butt of his tales.
The stories he talked about on the night I saw him included camping in Mexico, skydiving in New Zealand, a stag trip to Amsterdam and a comedy gig he did in the Himalayas, but who knows where he will go on another night?
Mor is always great value for money. I am certain he would get great reactions and laughs if he was merely reading from a telephone book. ( Do such things still exist?)
On spotting his reviewer in the crowd Mor said just write down he was as funny as f*ck. He was of course spot on. He was. Click Here
