BioMartin is blessed with animal-keen senses that enable him to track people and objects with an impressive degree of success. He also processes uncanny comic improvisational skills. His mission is to remove evil from the world, or at least have a laugh about it. Born into a circus family, the famous Mucmors, Martin had an early career as a juggler, unicyclist, knife thrower, fire-eater, magician, and photographic model. As the result of an accident in the big top, in which he sustained a shattered ankle, he was forced to retire from performing his famous, freestanding ladder, tall unicycle, basketball juggling, pyrotechnic act. Temporally robbed of his mobility, his senses reorganized themselves, producing a heightened comedic ability, lightning fast improvisational skills, and an improved sense of smell. He became a stand-up comedian. The beast within the boy unleashed at last, he became the dynamic, multi-skilled performer Martin Bigpig Mor, combining startlingly original material with bold, energetic improvisation. His love of working the audience, and an inability to remember his script, mean that every show is a unique interactive live event, and no two shows are ever the same. He has performed successfully at events of all description, from a show for the inmates of an Italian prison (performing in the exercise yard), to numerous appearances on radio, and television. Martins photograph is featured on the popular board game Trivial Pursuits. The Genus Edition. On an arts entertainments square. One of the pink ones. He is wearing a leotard. A truly global performer, Martin has worked throughout the known world performing his shows extensively in Britain and Ireland, and also in the USA, Italy, Holland, Germany, South Africa, United Arab Emirates, Singapore, Indonesia, Hong Kong, and Mainland China. His shows received rave reviews at the Edinburgh Festival in 1997, 1998, and 1999. After an absence of three years, (due to an extended world tour), he appeared at the 2003,and 2004 festivals, to media acclaim, and the relief of his friends, who thought he was in jail. AKA: Under the name Martin Mor, He has written and performed several plays, and was a writer of BBC Radio Four's highly acclaimed comedy show, The In Crowd. Martin was once a guest on Woman's Hour. The rest of Martin's life is shrouded in mystery, peppered with half-truths and anecdotal reports of unconfirmed sightings... Haunted by half-forgotten demons, he fights for those who can't fight for themselves, fighting to bring joy to world, to all the boys and girls.
