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.


Elaine Clark



One of the City of Aberdeen’s foremost edumacators, Elaine brings her own distinctive blonde dizziness to the Pig proceedings and several members of her family too, who are inevitably asked to add some exquisite musical ornamentation to the show.

Elaine commenced her theatrical training at Scotstown and Udny Green Primaries before graduating to Ellon Academy. Theatre work includes Third Angel in the School Nativity and a hooting part as an Owl in The Wind in the Willows, for which she achieved critical acclaim for the intensity of her acting, as well as the magnificent costume lovingly hand crafted by her mother from finest brown paper. Elaine now performs in front of a captive audiences 5 days a week at Albyn School.

Television work includes a week-long stint on Wacaday where she taught Timmy Mallet the finer points of Scottish Country Dancing, and also a starring role as “incredulous teenager in the crowd at Pittodrie” in a glorious Don’s defeat of Rangers.

A die-hard Aberdeen fan, Lainey takes great pride in the fact that her late Grandma played for the Dons when ladies football briefly flourished during wartime. Even with her zimmer, she would still have beaten Zander Diamond over six yards.
