Enjoy Celebrity Radio’s Comedian Stan Boardman Life Story Interview….
Stan Boardman is a comedy legend in the UK!
He was evacuated with his family to Wrexham during the WW11, and after the family returned to their Merseyside home mistakenly thinking the area had escaped the German bombs, his elder brother Tommy was killed in a bombing raid.
The ‘German’s’ would later become the backbone and most popular topic of his act.
He had been a keen footballer in his youth and was an apprentice at Liverpool F.C., and signed for Tranmere Rovers as a teenager.
Boardman ran a haulage firm before winning a holiday camp talent contest and breaking into television on Opportunity Knocks and The Comedians.
His most legendary appearance was on ‘Des O’Connor Tonight’ when he told the legendary ‘Fokker’ story.
