WIN tickets to watch Roy Chubby Brown at The Playhouse
PUBLISHED: 09:00 11 August 2018
An outspoken comedian will perform his latest stand-up routine in Weston this month, and the Mercury has tickets to the show to give away.
Roy Chubby Brown will be at The Playhouse in High Street at 7.30pm on August 24.
Across a career spanning three decades, Brown has become renowned for speaking his mind and filling his performances with plenty of tongue-in-cheek blue language.
Complete with his trademark patchwork coat, red bow tie, flying helmet and goggles, the 73-year-old’s image is just as unmistakable as his close-to-the-line humour.
Brown was born in a North Yorkshire town in 1945, and his comedy career began with an appearance on TV talent show New Faces in the 1970s, when he performed as part of a double act called Alcock and Brown.
After a second-place finish, the show proved to be a launchpad for Brown’s career.
He has gone on to release more than 25 stand-up show recordings since 1990.
While often controversial, Brown has maintained a loyal following of fans particularly in the north of England.
Away from the stage, the comedian has played the role of mayor in the second series of The League Of Gentlemen while he also recorded a cover version of Living Next Door To Alice which peaked at number three in the UK Singles Chart in 1995.
He also released a film called UFO in 1993, in which he is abducted by aliens.
Tickets, priced £26, are available online or by calling 01934 645544.
