When Cloughie punched Jeremy

Award-winning broadcast journalist –turned-comedian Jeremy Nicholas provided the laughs when he appeared as guest speaker at Birmingham Press Club’s Christmas luncheon.

Jeremy, who earlier this year enjoyed a successful 27-show run at the Edinburgh Fringe, reminisced about a career which has taken him from the East Midlands – where he received a punch from legendary Nottingham Forest manager Brian Clough and where he was ambushed on air by an armed man claiming to be Jesus – to the BBC World Service, Channel 5 and being stadium announcer at West Ham United FC.

The lunch, which annually brings together Press Club members and corporate contacts, was held at the Circle Restaurant, Birmingham Hippodrome.
