Stan was born on Merseyside and his great ambition was to play professional football for Liverpool. After failing to make the grade in football he eventually entered the world of show business by entering a talent show when he was on holiday at a Butlin’s Holiday Camp.
He won first prize. Further appearances in talent shows saw him winning first prize at the London Palladium final, which subsequently launched him on his new career as a comedian. Since then he has numerous television appearances on ‘The Comedians’ and ‘Video Entertainers’ before headlining his own TV special ‘Success with Stan’.
He is as popular as ever, flying all over the world working in cabaret and theatre.
