Alex Boardman

Alex Boardman is now one of the most sought after acts in the country due to his ability to interact with any audience and to seemingly conjure something out of nothing. His free flowing style and natural charm breeze through in performances. However there is often hard-hitting edge to his material that acts as counter balance to this.

Given this ability for ad-libbing and ease with the audience, it is no wonder that Alex often finds himself acting as compere. His unique brand of “Flattery and abuse” as one journalist put it, is always popular, as although he dances round the edge of what it is considered PC to say in public, the lack of malice and sense of fun in what he does, means that everyone gets to laugh. Best of all, you feel it is at no one’s expense.

Alex writes and co-presents “The 7th Day” on Galaxy FM, a Manchester based commercial station that is part of the Chrysalis Group.

And before you ask, no, he’s no relation to Stan Boardman.
