Mervyn Stutter


“The comedy voice of the Baby Boom Generation.”

Daily Telegraph

Mervyn Stutter is an actor, scriptwriter, comedian and songwriter. He recently wrote and starred in his own BBC Radio 4 comedy GETTING NOWHERE FAST - all three series are still being repeated on Radio 4 Extra.

"Written by the extremely funny Mervyn Stutter,

this comedy series has a laugh every other line.

Expect to see this on TV soon!"

Jane Anderson, Radio Times

Previously he co-wrote and starred in three series of his own comedy show on BBC Radio 2:


“the best radio comedy programme I’ve heard for years”

Sue Arnold, The Observer

“The highlights of the piece are the clever songs.”

Mail on Sunday

Merv has been making people laugh in folk clubs, comedy clubs, cabaret theatre, radio and TV for over 40 years and now, still convinced that “small is beautiful” - he is back where he is happiest, performing in small intimate venues across the UK. 

“Celebrating the trivial and attacking the absurd

he gives us a seriously funny show

The Scotsman

The show’s real strength sneaks up on you because we have so little like it – a middle aged man standing by himself on stage, talking and singing about the emotions of growing old. Mervyn bares his soul with humour

and manages to be funny, angry and quietly moving all at the same time.”

Broadway Baby

“some of the funniest songs to be heard on the Fringe this year

or any year for that matter”

Edinburgh Evening News

“Stutter is a sharp as any, as funny as any

and more informed than most.”

The Times

“Like the host of a dinner party, Merv treats his audience as welcome guests.

He chats a bit, tells a few jokes, makes some pithy observations

and entertains with clever comedy songs on guitar.

Stutter appears so genuine that he is irresistibly likeable.”

The Scotsman

This year will be his 27th consecutive year of performing on the Edinburgh Fringe.

No wonder the press have christened him “The Fringe Overlord”.
