SIR: I was de­lighted to read the trib­ute to the bostin’ Black Coun­try co­me­dian Tommy Mun­don ( Spring 2015). Years ago my fa­ther was en­ter­tain­ment sec­re­tary of our lo­cal Con­ser­va­tive Club and he fre­quently booked Tommy for the MWM Show or the Black Coun­try Night Out, al­ways re­sult­ing in a packed club. You had to get there early if you wanted a seat, oth­er­wise you’d be stand­ing at the back with nu­mer­ous oth­ers.

It was com­edy at its best. For­tu­nately in the Mid­lands we have two Black Coun­try co­me­di­ans — David Bart­ley and Doug Parker — both bril­liant in their own way who are fol­low­ing in Tommy’s foot­steps. Good hu­mour never dies! — IRENE PURSLOW, BIRM­ING­HAM, WAR­WICK­SHIRE.
