Dave Quaite


After appearing as a shouting Irishman in the first Flying Pig Show, shouting Irishman Dave went on to graduate from Aberdeen University in Psychology.

Accepting the Queen’s Shilling, he then embarked for a life on the ocean wave with the Royal Navy, protecting not only our shores, but also fish and, with the aid of a decent sunblock, his skin.

He briefly reprised his stage career and was outstanding in the Britannia Royal Naval College’s Christmas Panto as Prince Charming, a role more traditionally played by a female performer.

He is now the Navigating Officer on HMS ENTERPRISE, a position which will be held in the future by a Mr. Sulu and a Mr. Data


Greg Gordon



Greg brings to the group a tight intellectual discipline, a tranquil voice of reason and the stomach lining of a pensioner, he can be seen stomping around the campus of Aberdeen University, academic gown fluttering behind him, in his day job at the Department of Law.

Trained at Walker Dam Infants and Hazelhead Primary and Secondary, Greg recovered from the early disappointment of being passed over for the nativity, going on to provide a sensitive portrayal of ‘Second Elephant’ in the school pageant. His trunk, consisting of tangerines stuffed into a spray painted football sock stunned audiences and strained his neck muscles. His television work includes a recurring role as ‘man walking away from camera’, on North Tonight’s library shot of Old Aberdeen High Street (1993-1994), providing an ad hoc interview to Jane Franchi on the sacking of Alex Smith as Don’s manager, and an appearance on Grampian Weekend in which he gave a gravely serious interview on the nature of comedy.

Greg’s writing career began at the age of 11 with the publication of a letter to the Green Final. Since then he has written jokes for the school debating society, the same jokes for The Student Show and the same jokes again for Flying Pig. He lives in Aberdeen and in fear of being found out.


Andrew Brebner



Theatrical harlot Mr A J Brebner is regularly seen galumphing around the stage in a series of musical comedies and operettas. In the real world, which he does his best to spend as little time in as possible, he is a self-unemployed graphic designer (portfolio on www.brebdesign.co.uk). Andrew received his extensive training at Ashley Road and Airyhall Primary Schools, Hazlehead Academy, Aberdeen College, Aberdeen University, The Robert Gordon University and Aberdeen College again. The current crisis in student funding can’t be blamed on him in it’s entirety, but it’s gye close.

He made his theatrical debut with Miss McKenzie’s Primary 3 class, in the role of ‘lava’ in a white vest. This was followed by dual roles as ‘Singing Cowboy’ and ‘First Train Carriage’ in the unforgettable Primary 5 Concert and only 13 years later, he appeared as ‘Chief’ in a self-penned 5-minute abridgement of One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest for Aberdeen University English department. His use of a boiler suit, a long black wig and a tin of brown Kiwi shoe polish is still talked about to this day. Mostly in seminars about diversity awareness.

Aside from countless Student Shows and songs and sketches for Flying Pig Productions, his writing credits include several dozen books, dictated to his mother between the ages of 4 and 6, which currently await publication. In his loft.
