Max Boyce
Maxwell Boyce, MBE (born 7 September 1945 in Glynneath) is a Welsh comedian and singer, who came to national fame during the mid-1970s as a result of the phenomenal success of the Welsh rugby team of that period.

Max had competed, unsuccessfully, on the television talent show, Opportunity Knocks, shortly before releasing his first album, Live at Treorchy, in 1973. It was a recording of a live performance at Treorchy Rugby Club, with plenty of audience participation. The songs on the album, especially Hymns and Arias, soon became popular with rugby crowds, and for several years the entertainer appeared regularly on stage, television and radio, recording further hit albums such as We All Had Doctors' Papers.

Boyce's career suffered a downturn in the 1990s, but he continues to perform and tour. A high note came in 1999, when he performed at the opening ceremony of the 1999 Rugby Union World Cup in the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff.
