The Max Miller Appreciation Society gathered in Brighton this week to mark the 50th anniversary of Max’s death on the 7th May 1963. Michael Aspel, the well known TV personality and a lifelong Max Miller fan, unveiled a sign for the newly designated ‘Max Miller Walk’ on Brighton seafront. 

Born in Hereford Street, Kemp Town as Thomas Henry Sargent on 21 November 1894, Max rose from very humble beginnings to be one of the biggest comedy stars this country has ever known.

Comments about this page

I remember in the 50s seeing Max Miller. A friend of mine and his family lived in a basement flat in College Road in Kemptown and Max Miller seemed to be living in the upstairs part of the house. We saw him quite often, sometimes he was as happy as Larry and sometimes he was a grumpy sod and did not speak to us kids at all.
