Stand-up comedian David Morgan takes over Attitude’s Twitter for Eurovision 2016

By Fabio Crispim

With the Eurovision final heading our way tonight (May 14) we’ve got a special treat in store for you.

Stand-up comedian, television presenter and Eurovision aficionado, David Morgan, is taking over Attitude Magazine’s Twitter account. Join David as he live-tweets everything Eurovision from the garish outfits to Graham Norton’s stellar commentary.

Speaking about Eurovision, David said:

Eurovision is honestly and un-ironically one of the highlights of my year. The fact it exists and we still do it is ridiculous and incredible. There’s nothing to hate about it. Even the scoring has its own charm. I can’t wait to host Attitude’s online #Eurovision party.

Dress like a flag, buy in some Tzatziki, Swedish meatballs, whatever it is they eat in Azerbaijan and let’s have a proper Eurovij knees up.”

Originally from Solihull and now residing in London, David started performing when he was at University in Leicestershire. He’s perhaps best known for his role as team captain in ITV2’s hilarious comedy panel gameshow, Safeword, where he stars alongside fellow team captain and comedian Katherine Ryan and host, Rick Edwards. The show is due to return for a second series this summer and sees celebrity guests mercilessly ripped apart by the opposing panel until they can’t take it anymore and have to deploy their ‘safeword’.

Alongside this, David has a long list of credits, having starred in BBC3’s Sweat the Small Stuff, E4’s Virtually Famous, Channel 5’s Big Brother’s Bit on the Side, ITV2’s Xtra Factor and ITV2’s I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here! Now!

Safeword returns to ITV2 this summer.

Meanwhile, you can catch David Morgan’s witty commentary here on @AttitudeMag and via his own account @ThisIsDavid tonight (May 14) at 8pm on BBC One.
