Illustrated Talks

John loves nothing better than to be invited to give a talk or lecture on the subject of the Heydrich assassination. He speaks passionately with knowledge, depth and understanding, all without notes. His command of the subject is second to none! The UK Embassy in Prague invite him to speak there on occasions and he has even been invited to address a University in America.

"Passionate presentation that was so informative and thought provoking. Really, really enjoyed the night"


"Just been to Johns talk in Formby and a really great passionate talk off John of the Anthropoid story, he really knows how to get people to listen to every word. I was looking around the room and everyone was paying attention to him. As usual moments of laughter and photos I hadn't seen before and more snippets of information I hadn't heard before"


"Amazing talk tonight John, thank you!"


"Great presentation by @JohnMartinComic on Anthropoid tonight, excellent work John."


"thanks for great night. Everyone enjoyed it and it was a really successful evening for our Civic Society."


"I knew the story and read the book, but you still managed to pull some rabbits out of the hat. Just off the top of my head, the photos of the Czechoslovak soldiers in Dale Street. You have not just 'researched' this whilst leading a busy and active professional life, you are a continuing focal point for all future research and exposition. Anything happens, send for John! The extra level is what you pointed out last night. Good on you and you have every right to be proud of what you have done. I will keep an eye on the website just in case I can join in with some activity or other in the future"


"I am now able say categorically that everyone present that evening wish to join me in thanking you for addressing our Club.
Your depth of knowledge of "Operation Anthropoid" as presented by you so eloquently was most impressive and your book is further evidence of the thoroughness of your research. Our Club have been fortunate to have some excellent speakers but a clear message from Members is that we have had none better."


"Just got back from from seeing your stand up on Friday night were you made me laugh, Saturday morning I shed a tear at your lecture. On Monday I devoured your book in one sitting. Brilliant !!!! "


"I was lucky enough to be present at a lecture on this story given by John Martin on a cruise liner which was given voluntary by him.I couldn't wait to get the book. Absolutely brilliant"


"Hi John, this is the only way that I can think of to contact you. My partner and I were on both the Royal Carribean ship 'Independence of the Seas and also the P & O ship 'Azura' recently when you appeared as a comedian. Not only are you a very funny comedian but also we caught your lecture on the 'Azura' about Operation Anthropoid - what a spellbinding story this is and true as well. It makes one realise just what brave people lived in those awful times.
What a brilliant storyteller you are"
