Known as Britain’s lewdest, crudest and boldest comedian, Roy ‘Chubby’ Brown is set to entertain Lancaster audiences with his 40th anniversary tour.

A firm advocate of no holds barred in comedy, Roy Chubby Brown remains one of the UK’s most iconic, boundary-pushing comedians: testing the taboo and flirting with the forbidden.

Best known for his risqué humour and patchwork clown suit, the Yorkshire-born comedian is renowned for his old-school cheekiness and irreverent observations.

He has made more than 1,000 live appearances and performed in front of 1.5 million fans in a stand-up career spanning 40 years.

Roy began performing his own stand-up in Stoke on Trent in 1976, where his talents were identified by comedy veteran, Bernard Manning.

In celebration of the four decades since his solo comedy debut, Roy, equipped with his trademark flying helmet, pilot goggles and vivid tailoring, will be celebrating growing old disgracefully with a 27-date national tour.

Critics say every aspect of the self-confessed “old school comic” exudes tradition; from his clownish appearance, to his music-hall singing.

The funny man will be coming to the Lancaster Grand Theatre on Friday October 28 at 7.30pm.

Tickets cost £20 on 01524 64695 or at www.lancastergrand.co.uk/shows.
