“Hilarious Tales of Old Brum” – An evening with entertainer Malcolm Stent at The St Andrews Town Hotel, starting at 7pm. 

Born and bred in Birmingham, comedian and entertainer Malcolm Stent is very proud of his native city and in Hilarious Tales of Old Brum” he tells jokes, plays his guitar, sings some great songs and shares some stories and anecdotes about his family and the community he lived in when he grew up in the back streets of Birmingham in the 50’s and 60’s. Though times and places may have changed, that great Brummie spirit and its unique brand of humour survive intact!

Come and share an evening of comedy and music with one of the Midland’s favourite performers!

Malcolm Stent is one of Birmingham’s best loved and most acclaimed entertainers. He has been performing professionally and making audiences laugh for over 30 years and has gained legions of fans of all ages. His early entertainment roots grew in skiffle bands and folk clubs. He was a founder member of the Timoneers (together with Droitwich resident Malcolm “Hearty” Wakeman) and they enjoyed huge popularity during the sixties as they went from village halls to radio and TV with their unique blend of music and humour. He had his own show on BBC Radio WM and was a regular on BBC Pebble Mill. He now performs his one man show in theatres and village halls and he has regular matinee shows of comedy and music at the Core Theatre, Solihull. He also hosts his hugely popular show “Malcolm Stent’s Songs of Praise” with the Salvation Army Band.

Not only a performer, Malcolm is a well-respected playwright. His plays “Go and Play Up Your Own End”, “A League Apart”  and more recently “Brummegem Pals”, co-written with Don Maclean, have been staged around the Midlands and wider afield and have been very well received by audiences. He has also notched up an amazing 26 years of writing and performing in the Solihull pantomime. He is co-writer of “Back To Back” and “Wait Till Your Father Comes Home” with Don Maclean. 

Alongside his professional work as a comedian, Malcolm has worked tirelessly over the decades for small and large charities across the Midlands including hospital visits, fundraisers, guest speaking and similar, and was recently awarded the BEM in Her Majesty The Queen’s New Year Honours List.
