About me...

For more years than I care to remember I have been associated with the world of entertainment as an actor, broadcaster and speaker.
Two highlights are the launching of Anglia Television in Norwich and the commercial radio station Plymouth Sound in Plymouth.
As a youngster at school in Bath I failed miserably academically and on the field of sport, but I always had the leading part in school plays!
My sister married a Canadian, so I lived in Canada for seven years appearing regularly with the London Little Theatre at the Grand Theatre, London, Ontario.
As the entertainment world is so precarious I have had to accept other work as varied as a waiter to an attendant in a hospital morgue.
Around the age of forty, by pure chance, a new career started as a speaker and this has included eighteen cruises as the Guest Speaker on ships ranging from the ‘QE2’ to ‘Voyager’

About my talks...


All my talks are true stories and it goes without saying they contain no crudity.

My duration is usually 50/60 minutes.


My basic fee is for all Zoom talks is £40.

I am also happy for bookings for talks on short notice.

My Farcical Career as the Passenger Liaison Officer on a Cruise Ship.

This talk is about passengers and includes such true nonsense as the lady who telephoned the Purser and said she could not get out of her cabin as there was a notice hanging on her door that read ‘Do not disturb’.

The Humour That Surrounds Us.

A look at the humour that surrounds us daily – a sign in a large department store in Bournemouth read ‘During the period of renovation, the basement will be found on the first floor’.

True Psychic Experiences.

I’ll tell you about fascinating events that are best described as illogical, inexplicable and certainly unbelievable.
