Craig Pike



King of Couthy, Man of the People and Pin up boy of the Sunshine Club (Kincorth), Craig is a local showbiz legend in his own lunchtime. When not pursuing his day job with a prominent local law firm,  he can bring joy to a roomful of octogenarians with a squeeze of his box.

Craig began his career at an early age, appearing as ‘The Oracle’ in Mile End Primary School’s sell out production of “Queen Beryl and the Romans” in 1985. This part required him to wear his mother’s spare room curtains, a look which he periodically sports to this day, sometimes when bowling. In 1988 he made his professional debut as Third Munchkin from the Left in “The Wizard of Oz”, with Jessica Martin.

An accomplished accordion player, Craig is a stalwart of “Mrs Gerrard’s Accordion Band” ® and his recorded work includes the CD and Video box set “Hogmanay Party at Pittodrie House Hotel”, available now from all good reduced to clear bins.
TV includes appearing as a solo artiste in “Little Donkey”, live from Beechgrove Church in 1986, and an appearance on Grampian TV in the shining and radiant company of Sarah Mack, who, it turns out, really is that colour in real life.

Craig is also resident choreographer for Flying Pig, having studied at the Balnagask Conservatoire of Dance where he graduated with distinction in Tap, Ballet and The Slosh.


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.
