Rikki Fulton

Born in the East End of Glasgow to a non-theatrical family, the young Rikki Fulton was a natural performer, who knew from an early age that he wanted to be on the stage. After eventful wartime service in the Royal Navy, where his ship was torpedoed in the Mediterranean, it didn't take Rikki Fulton long to move from amateur dramatics and a respectable job in a shipping agency to the precarious world of the full-time performer. Rikki Fulton quickly established himself as a hugely popular entertainer whose characters have become legends: from Josie (of Francie and Josie fame) to the Reverend I.M. Jolly (star of innumerable Hogmanay celebrations) and Supercop in Scotch & Wry.
