Who remembers that British television show of the 1970′s (and again in the mid 80′s & early 90′s), a programme that began as an experiment for Granada TV, filmed before a live audience in Manchester, with individual comics each performing a 20-minute set. These sets were then edited together into half-hour shows featuring up to ten stand-up comics.
Yes, we are talking about The Comedians which gave a stage to nightclub and working men’s club comedians of the era, including amongst many others Stan Boardman.
Stan and his wife, Viv have been coming to Tenerife for many years now and really enjoy the climate here – it is a great place for them to rest and recharge their batteries.
Some of our other members were really happy to recognise him as we walked around the complex and he was happy to stop and have a natter with them, or even pose for a quick photos as he did with Mr and Mrs Adams.
Stan stood for a while looking at the view from one of our Sun Terraces across to the beach and ocean just beyond before turning around and commenting on the great views in the other direction too – the volcanic hills and of course Teide.
Although a keen golfer, Stan has been enjoying our swimming pool this week rather than going to one of the many golf courses close to the resort – in fact I had to persuade him not to jump in fully clothed as we passed by on the way to the Pool Bar!
After a quick drink with Lynn at the Pool Bar, we moved on to the Cinamo Bar and Restaurant where he jumped at the chance to help Eli serving a few customers (we did keep him away from the till though).
I hope you have enjoyed seeing our photos – have you taken any memorable photos whilst at any of our resorts? If you have some please send them in to us so we can share them.
