Once The Commentators’ radio commentary brought major sporting events into the nation’s living rooms. Now, having fallen on hard times, they bring their same unquenchable optimism to commentating on anything and everything except professional sport.

They have brought their undying passion for words and life to a range of events now including gallery openings, the World Gurning Championship, awards ceremonies, Moseley Folk Festival, a primary school sports day and the opening days of the new Library of Birmingham.

The Commentators are managed by the internationally acclaimed theatre company Stan’s Cafe whose inventive, playful performances have been devised in Birmingham and toured the world since 1991.
