Comedian Roy “Chubby” Brown, is set to entertain audiences with new dates added to his 40th anniversary tour, which will stop in Margate and Bromley.

A firm advocate of no holds barred in comedy, Mr Brown remains one of the UK’s most 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 has made over 1,000 live appearances and performed in front of 1.5 million fans in a stand-up career spanning over 40 years.

Since his first solo performance over four decades ago, he has remained one of the nation’s most recognisable comedians. Equipped with his trademark flying helmet, pilot goggles and vivid tailoring, Mr Brown never ceases to provide an evening as animated as his appearance.

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

His tour is coming to Margate’s Winter Gardens on February 10, and Bromley’s Churchill Theatre on February 16.
