Stan Boardman

Red Collar Rat

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; just for fun. He reluctantly agreed 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. Suprisingly he won first prize!

That talent contest, however was just one of the many heats in a much larger national competition. Stan, now gaining in confidence with every appearance, progressed through each stage to a place in the Grand Final at the London Palladium. It was here that his distinctive style of comedy and his original material helped him walk off with the 1,000 first prize, a summer season engagement and the title 'Star Act Of The Year'. One leading business trade newspaper in reviewing Stan's act, headlined: 'A Star is Born'.
