Martin’s natural ability to make people laugh quickly guaranteed his progression into stand up comedy – soon becoming a huge hit with theatre audiences throughout the country.
As a comedian, Martin has shared top billing in four sell-out summer shows on the island of Jersey, and has since gone on to star alongside such legends as Gene Pitney, Tammy Wynette, Ken Dodd, Les Dawson to name but a few.
His talent was subsequently recognised by the Variety Club when they named him “Comedian Of The Year” 2 years running.
Today, Martin still enjoys working cabaret, and is always a sought after choice on the entertainment circuit. He is constantly in demand from many cruise lines, including P & O, Airtours and many other well known holiday companies where his clean, immaculately presented comedy is appreciated by all.
One of the most versatile entertainers today, Martin is perhaps best known for his performances from the top table. His ability to deliver a corporate speech to a corporate audience without a trace of smut or bad language makes him without doubt one of the most popular after dinner speakers in the country.
Martin has also proved a big hit on the “Sportsman’s Dinner” circuit, and regularly works alongside such sporting legends as Fred Trueman, Jack Charlton, Jimmy Greaves, Bill Beaumont and John Conteh.
