Stan Boardman
the scouse comic
Stan Boardman was born on Merseyside, where his one great schoolboy ambition was to play professional football for Liverpool unfortunately that's was not to be having failed to reach the standard in big time soccer! Though he was disappointed he started his own haulage business which earned him a steady living.
But it was the summer of 1976 that would change his life forever!
Stan and his family were on holiday at a Butlin's holiday camp, when his twin children persuaded him to enter the weekly talent competition. He reluctantly agreed as to not disappoint his kids and for the first time in his life he stood up on stage in front of a packed audience and entertained them with a hastily memorised list of jokes. Surprisingly he won first prize! Many more talent contests later and with his confidence growing Stan entered the big one ITV's Opportunity Knocks.
He made such an impact with the studio audience; Stan was invited back to appear on the programme's Gala Show and to appear on the Opportunity Knocks Variety Awards Shows. He was such a success on television that he was later asked to take over as host of Southern Television's popular children's series Runaround, following in the footsteps of pervious hosts Leslie Crowther and Mike Reid.
Starring on Granada Television's new Comedians series proved to be a tremendous springboard to even greater success for Stan as in the space of a handful of months he emerged as one of the most sort after comedians in show business. With offers of Pantomimes - cabaret spots and summer seasons in all major venues all over the UK.

Stan has always been a regular on our TV screens delighting his audience with appearances on The Des O'Conner show - Give Us A Clue - A Question Of Sport - Can't Cook Won't Cook - Kings of Comedy - Celebrity Wife Swap, and Celebrity Coach Trip, and he still finds time to perform his stand-up routine to packed houses all over the country. ..Oh and play a round of golf too!
