John Gorman (born 4 January 1936 in Birkenhead, Cheshire), is an English comedian, vocalist and comedy musician.


The Scaffold



After grammar school, Gorman worked as a Telecommunications Engineer. He was the founder of the comedy music group The Scaffold, best known for their 1967 hit single Lily the Pink, and its successor the band Grimms – the 'G' in Gorman providing the 'G' in Grimms. He also made a comedy musical album for DJM Records, Go Man Gorman.

During the 1970s he made brief film appearances in Frankie Howerd's medieval set farce Up the Chastity Belt (1971), Melody (1971), Terry Gilliam's Jabberwocky (1977), where he is credited as 'second peasant', and The Music Machine (1979) as a newsagent.


Television



He also made regular appearances on the British children's television show Tiswas between 1978 and 1981, and was one of the Four Bucketeers, a novelty band whose highest-charting single was "Bucket of Water Song", which reached No. 26 in the UK Singles Chart in 1980. After Tiswas, he worked with Chris Tarrant on its adult-orientated successor O.T.T.. He then moved to Tyne Tees, first on the children's game show How Dare You! and later on another children's show, Razzmatazz.

After a period living in France, he returned as Artistic Director for the Theatre on the Steps in Bridgnorth, Shropshire, England. He appeared on the Tiswas Reunited show on ITV1 on 16 June 2007. Also in 2007 he announced plans to establish a Wirral Academy of the Arts at Birkenhead Park.

Nacido y formado como persona en el barrio montevideano de Peñarol, en el cual se reconocen a las familias que allí viven por su "origen nacional" (en esta calle los italianos, en aquella los alemanes, etc., entre todas las colectividades allí convivientes), Gerardo Dorado Dietrich (18 de febrero de 1982) está dispuesto a salir hoy a escena, por segunda vez en su carrera solista, a las tablas del Teatro Solís de Montevideo, escenario principal de la República Oriental del Uruguay.
