Brian Newbold

The Man From The Coal Board

Brian Newbold is a Doncaster born comedian known for his on-stage persona as ‘the man from the Coal Board’; born to an Irish mother and with several years working as an engineer at British Coal Brian has a unique and undeniably British sense of humour that draws on his experiences working within the coal industry.

With a dark and slightly warped sense of humour Brian is an excellent comedian, his stand-up informed by the tainted world view he garnered whilst working for British Coal and honed to elicit genuine bellows of laughter from a variety of audiences at after dinner events.

Brian prides himself on his ability to personalise his comedian’s act, having appeared at a number of corporate events – with clients ranging from Barclay’s Bank to BMW and the Institute of Funeral Directors to IMB he has even worked as an after dinner speaker for the elusive Freemasons – Brian Newbold knows what is required to please employees and business owners alike. Always armed with a tasteful but hilarious jibe at the Chairman Brian caters his stand-up routine to each individual performance but maintains his sharp and distorted comedian style.

“Brian  spoke at our Annual County Dinner at Copt Heath Golf Club and was excellent.  He was very well received by the 180 guests and he gave an extremely funny and well constructed speech.  Several people have already contacted me since the dinner for his details.  I can heartily recommend him as an after-dinner speaker at golfing or similar functions where wit and humour are required.”  – The Warwickshire Union of Golf Clubs
