Moray Hunter (born 6 October 1957, Hawick, Scotland) is a Scottish comedian, writer and performer. He is perhaps most famous for his roles in the Channel 4 sketch show, Absolutely. Alongside Jack Docherty he played one half of the eccentric double-act, Don and George, in Absolutely and later in the spin-off series, Mr. Don and Mr. George. Moray is also known for his role as the Absolutely character, Callum Gilhooley, a blathering anorak-wearing motorbike enthusiast who is based loosely on Siadwell, a character from BBC Scotland's Naked Video played by fellow Absolutely actor, John Sparkes. Moray also provided the voice for a shadow puppet in one of Aardman Animations' short films, Humdrum.[1]

As a writer, Moray has contributed to Smack the Pony, Alas Smith and Jones, Spitting Image, The Lenny Henry Show, The Clan,[2] and the animated series of Meg and Mog.

He is a supporter of Heart of Midlothian F.C.
