Roy Chubby Brown

Roy Chubby Brown

Date 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.

Roy Chubby Brown signs with Jim Davidson's streaming service

30 of his stand-up shows available to subscribers

Roy Chubby Brown has signed an exclusive deal with Jim Davidson’s streaming channel Ustreme.

It means 30 of his stand-up titles – including his latest, Harmless Vulgarity and Friendly Smut – will be available to anyone paying the £4.79 a month subscription.

Davidson, said: ‘Chubby’s comedy knows no bounds or limits and he believes that if an audience does not want to hear what he has to say it is best if they don’t come…but come they do, in their thousands.

‘Roy was one of the biggest selling DVD entertainers of the last decade and Ustreme’s exclusive deal means we’ll now be streaming all of his shows and interviews.

‘I’ve never actually worked with Roy, in fact I’ve never seen him live, but I have met him several times and a nicer bloke you couldn’t wish to meet. It is a great privilege to have Chubby signed to Ustreme and I’m sure that members will be glued to his outrageous antics.’

Harmless Vulgarity and Friendly Smut will stream exclusively on from Sunday September 25. Recorded in Billingham in January, it was previously available as a £20 DVD.
