Welcome to the website of actor, comedian and full-time nerd, Des O’Gorman.


Here you can find out all about me, see some photos, watch some videos and generally get your fill of the Nerdy One (name patent pending).

For bookings and enquiries head down to the contact form at the bottom of the page.


For now, thank you for visiting. You look great, by the way.


Des O’Gorman.



I trained at Queen Margaret University, Edinburgh.


Since then, I have appeared as Marty in "Too Long The Heart" (Dir. Andy Corelli. Awkward Stranger), Michael in "Globophobia" (Dir, Amy McKenzie, urban Fox Productions) and various characters for the murder mystery "Can You Catch The Killer" (Dir. Kenny Boyle. Can You Catch The Killer).

The background image is from "Dr. Faustus" (Dir, Ash Pryce. Chimaera Prod.) where I played the role of Lucifer.



I have written and performed one-man shows based on my two passions -  Ghostbusters and being a nerd.


My first show, “Still Ready To Believe you: Celebrating 30+ years of Ghostbusters” has played at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe and at after-parties at comic conventions all across the UK.


My second show “The Nerd, The Whole Nerd and Nothing but the Nerd” has also played at conventions and at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe.



I am a recognisable face of the Scottish Comic Conventions and have been a stage host for conventions like Capital Sci-Fi Con, Edinburgh Comic Con, Fort Con, Ness Con, Cos Con, Inverness Comic Con, Granite City Comic Con and Ecto Con, bringing my love, passion and humour to the stage.


I have hosted star panels for William Hope, Sylvester McCoy, Paul McGann, Bryan O’Halloran and many others. I am also proud of the work I do to help encourage and support fellow cosplayers at the cosplay panels at conventions.
