Roy Chubby BrownDate of birth: 05-02-1945
Left home at 14, then lived rough until joining the merchant navy among various other jobs. Got into the Working Men's Club in the 50s, first as a drummer, then evolved a comedy act.
He appeared on Opportunity Knocks in the 70s and came fourth. He then decided to 'go blue' and became one of the most foul-mouthed comics on his circuit.
His act causes offence to many, but has built up a dedicated following, even though the nature of his material has kept him off TV. Sales of his videos and audio tapes are phenomenal.
