International award-winning public speaker from North Walsham ventures into print

A north Norfolk man who has won top awards for standing up and making 'em laugh, is now hoping for the same success in print.

Andrew Brammer has just published Stumpy Sanderson's Scrapbook - written versions of all the stories he has been performing to sell-out audiences in the UK and Ireland over the past three years.

Mr Brammer, 48, from Manor Road, North Walsham, won the UK and Ireland Humorous Speech Championship in 2000, reached four UK and Ireland finals for public speaking, and finished third in 2004. He is also a nine-times East Anglian public speaking champion.

His book of yarns take readers back to his boyhood in the truck-making town of Dunstable in the 1970s.

He recalls numerous hair-raising japes, scrapes and capers he and friends got up to and the characters they encountered along the way.

'At my shows and performances, these stories seem to strike a chord in that they not only give people some laughs, but also a flavour of what it was like growing up as a boy in these very different times,' he said.

Mr Brammer combines his storytelling prowess with a job as commercial director of power-steering manufacturers PSS, on North Walsham's industrial estate.
