|A sweet story from Agraman|
The promoter, and regular compere, of the North-West's Buzz Clubs, Agraman 'the human anagram', came into comedy after being made redundant as a Daily Express journalist.
He started a folk club at the Malt Shovels pub in Altrincham, in 1986 and three years, and a new venue, later, he added comedy to the bill.
In 2004 he won the Les Dawson Award for Services to Comedy at the North West comedy awards.

Agraman, the human anagram, is a real super hero... The thing that stands out about this guy, as a promoter, is that he responds to a comedian, ie offers work, simply because he likes their comedy, which actually is not how a lot of the other promoters seem to be working these days- the latter focussing on booking 'TV names' etc...
A very, very, very, very, nice man. The Malcolm Hardee of the north.
He knows his comedy onions - he should do he's done enough sets, He's had us crying with laughter. Whenever you work for him you know you won't end up in a pickle . And that`s shallot!!!
Agraman's gigs have a large proportion of regular audience members. He has a knack of creating a comfy, intimate atmosphere for his acts. I've opened gigs for Agraman on numerous occasions over the last seven years or so and I have never had less than an attentive and up-for-it crowd. I've no idea how he does it... all the received wisdom (and this review) says he shouldn't be able to... but he does. He just does.
