Brian Newbold - After Dinner Speaker, Comedian

"The Man from the Coal Board" - After Dinner Speaker and Corporate Comedian.

During a life sentence as an engineer at British Coal, he developed a warped sense of humour and perfected the art of becoming invisible in the afternoon.

He is very well known on the circuit as "The Man from the Coal Board" and has entertained the full spectrum of organisations from The Royal Variety Club to The Institute of Funeral Directors!

He has shared the stage with many Celebrities, Sportsmen and even Members of Parliament, ranging from Status Quo to Sir Bobby Robson, and Jack Charlton to Austen Mitchell !

Since 1989 Brian has worked all over the UK and overseas, and as well as hundreds of Golf Clubs, Sportsman's Dinners, and Corporate Dinners, his work Launches, to cabaret on Cruise Liners, to live commentary at Air Shows.

In his spare time Brian enjoys tinkering with cars and motorbikes and loves flying light aircraft, although he admits a near-fatal collision with power cables a few years ago did dampen his enthusiasm for a while!

His material is suitable for all occasions and he will personalise his speech to suit your needs. (He always likes to give the Chairman a mention!)

An Irish Mother and a lifetime at British Coal have given Brian a unique sense of humour, which makes him the ideal man to round off your next Social, Sporting or Corporate event with a laugh.

You finished a very busy evening in some style! Your stories and jokes were ideal for the audience and completed a great night for all concerned.

The Warwickshire Union of Golf Clubs. "Brian spoke at our Annual County Dinner at Copt Heath Golf Club and was excellent. He was very well received by the 180 guests and he gave an extremely funny and well constructed speech. Several people have already contacted me since the dinner for his details. I can heartily recommend him as an after-dinner speaker at golfing or similar functions where wit and humour are required."
