Appearances

Don presented Good Morning Sunday

for over 15 years

 

Faithful friends, I have decided to close this website for the foreseeable future; I truly feel that it has past its sell-by date. This does not mean that I have given up entertaining;

I shall continue cruising, occasional theatre shows & after-dinner speaking, no more pantos though, after a grand total of 41 pantos, I've definitely decided to hang up my boobs. Thank you for reading my whimsical wanderings for the past how many years, should you have need to contact me for anything at all, use the e-mail doni@comic.com

 

I promise to reply.

 

Wherever you go 'May the Lord walk with you & keep you safe!'."

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Finding a comedy performer to entertain ladies could be a daunting task but Don Maclean is probably the answer: he is an authority on women. The women don’t know – the authorities – they know!!

There are many strands to DM

Option one:

For 15 years Don presented Good Morning Sunday on BBC Radio2. His after-dinner entertainment based on those years in which he refers to some of the 1,200 people he interviewed, the three pilgrimages he led to the Holy Land, his refusal to subscribe to Political Correctness & the many problems that caused + his philosophy on the approach of old age is guaranteed to exercise even the most immovable chuckle muscles.

Option two:

Having spent over 40 years on showbiz, appearing in many pantomimes, Summer Seasons as well as the London Palladium, he is perfectly capable of keeping an audience amused with a comedy routine which is particularly popular with adults who like their comedy clean.

Option three:

A tribute to fathers in comedy & song during which Don relates his experience of having a father & of being a father. Don claims; “The type of father you yourself become depends entirely on the example of fatherhood given to you by your own dad” & he sets out to prove his theory. With songs by Harvey Andrews this is guaranteed to bring a smile to the lips & a tear to the eye of anyone who’s ever had a dad, been a dad or even been in the same house as a dad.

Don is also an accomplished actor and most recently, has been on tour with the much acclaimed “There’s no Place like a Home” which cast him as a resident of a retirement home for old theatricals.

QUOTES:

“It made a great change to laugh riotously at such a serious event in our College calendar & was widely appreciated by parents & children alike.”

Speech Day at St Edmund’s College, Ware.

 

“As ever your natural style was received with great appreciation by all those in the audience. Thank you for entertaining us without a wrong joke in place; it can be done can’t it? You proved that. I know the message will be passed on to other Rotary Districts – watch this space.”

Rotary District 1070 Conference, Eastbourne .

"DM will probably never know how much he did for me that afternoon. If you are in touch with him please let him know how warmly his dynamic personality, energy & fun were received by at least one person.”

Christians Together, Nuneaton .

 

“Thankfully, despite his Radio2 ‘Good Morning Sunday’ & his success at playing pantomime ‘dame’ Don Maclean is still one of Britain ’s finest stand-up comedians. It had been 16yrs since I last saw his act & I had forgotten how brilliant he is. Maclean breezed on with an instant confidence & a pace & delivery that would have put most younger comedians into the shade. The guy is shrewd too; he knew how far he could go & kept within those boundaries. There was an abundance of topical gags, a great routine on his native Birmingham & some delightful observations on married life. There was nothing borrowed from other comedians or the endless round of gags they use. He is a one off & living proof that you do not need to stoop to blue material to keep an audience roaring with laughter for an hour. I have never seen a comedian create such an impact at this venue. There was no encore either; he left them wanting more & more. What a pro! - John Hannam, The Stage.
