Comedy & Speakers : Brian Newbold (Speaker)Brian was born and bred in Doncaster, which is a quaint fishing village on the outskirts of Barnsley. Upon telling the careers master that he had half a mind to work for the Coal Board he received the reply...
"That should be more than adequate"
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 includes everything from Awards Ceremonies and Product 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.
Brian has also entertained at many, many Golf Clubs, Golf Unions and Corporate Golf events throughout the UK, including The Belfry and The Royal Birkdale, and still regards golf dinners as his favourite.
