The following comment is from an article in “The Independent” Newspaper. Written by their former columnist Brian Viner, following Paul speaking at an Ipswich Town FC dinner:
|“Paul Boardman has been a presenter on Sky Sports News and also a comedian. Which is the most curious mix of jobs I’ve encountered since a man in my local pub told me he was not only a bus driver but also a shepherd. He is screamingly funny, in fact dangerously so; his routine gave me asthma and I am not an asthmatic. Along the top table from Paul, the Ipswich Chairman, David Sheepshanks, roared with laughter.”|
