Elvis McGonagall's brings the pick of a year's worth of his excoriating and savagely funny satire to Radio 4 in a blend of provocative verse and politically savvy stand-up comedy imbued with his customary searing wit, wordplay and anarchic invective. Pulling no punches Elvis directs his scurrilous diatribes at the powers that be from Westminster to Waitrose, taking aim at the injustices of our septic isle and beyond. Celebrity cheesemongers, luxury shepherd's huts, the pernicious effects of the patriarchy, some bloke called Trump, social meeja, Piers Morgan, SPADS, Government rules, wellness, climate change - it's all there. There's even a love poem.

Full Tartan Jacket presents the prime cuts from the work of a comic poet at the top of his game - all current and bang on target. Elvis crosses boundaries between comedy, performance poetry and music scenes. A past World Poetry Slam champion, he is well loved on Radio 4 with his many appearances on shows like Saturday Live and Macaulay and Co, his arts documentaries and his sitcom series.
