Born in Ulverston, my dad was Stan Laurel; long story.
Raised in MIllom, a small town 18 miles from Ulverston. Went to school, left and went to work at BNFL Sellafield. Spent 14 years there, seemed like 30. Left, attended Blackpool College to get drunk with the help of a grant. Left. Went to Coventry; almost sent. Did several jobs, a lot happened. Got a job as a bus driver. Became a writer. Became a Millionaire. And here we are, strolling leisurely through life, spending money like it was water. Love household chores. Love talking crapple. Was a member of Leamington Speakers club. Won the speaker of the year prize: 1000,000 quid. Bought a country mansion. Still get to do all the chores. What more could someone want? Sleep in the shed. Happy as a lark. Winner at the' Biggest Liar Competition' Jennings's Brewery at the Santon Bridge Hotel. Told you I talk crapple.
Yvonne joins me sometimes, when she isn't locked in the cellar playing with her imaginary friends.
Former LBIPP from Blackpool Photographic College my current photographic imagery is a bit different from the normal. I am a also comedy writer with books on Amazon that reflect the funny side of life. I like to interject comedy into my talks too hence my email address: pentertainer1.
I can present talks as stand alone, with props and as Power Point or video presentation. I also have my own media equipment and a screen. My talks usually last 45 minutes though they can be adapted and I can step in at short notice. The talks can have audience participation and poetry included that I have written and performed by me and my partner in crime, Yvonne.
Our talks have been performed for PROBUS , U3A, Mind Body Spirit events, and museum and art gallery groups.

My Photography considers:
Before photography went ‘WRONG’:
Before automatic cameras when there was a focussing ring with bearings and focussing an image was an art form with an eye for the image. After automatic cameras, there were people who could focus on an image with a film container balanced on their head and people forgot what depth of field preview meant, even though the button was on the camera. Before mobile phone photography; people only went for it because they had heard the Devil liked it. How to improve mobile phone photography, not technique.
The Beauty of Household Chores and the Law of Attraction
This talk is a standalone comedic style of talk based on my book around how we can find peace and happiness in the simple ‘chores’ we do around the house. The talk ventures into ‘SpiriTRIuality’ of the body and soul and attraction through vibration. There is also audience interaction and a workshop available too if required.
I cover within the talk aspects of Wellness and feeling good, Persistence in the right direction, tipping points, Self talk, Get out clauses, Excuses, ‘Give a fish or show how to fish.’
Millom's Golden Years
Based on my book about my home town including the characters that lived there from the 1980’s onwards and one man’s mission to prove God forgot to put the town on the map of England being on the West Lake District peninsula.
