Née Barry Elliot, Barry and brother Paul are better known as the Chuckle Brothers. British comedians who use slapstick and other visual gags, their catchphrases include "To me, to you" and "Oh dear, oh dear". They won the television talent show Opportunity Knocks in 1967 and then New Faces in 1974 but their careers really took off with their own BBC television show in 1985, Chucklehounds. This featured them dressed in giant dog costumes and was aimed at pre-school children. From there, they moved on to their most famous BBC show ChuckleVision in 1987, which was nominated for a Children’s BAFTA Award in the category Best Children's Television Series. ChuckleVision is now the UKs longest running current "sitcom", since Last of the Summer Wine was cancelled in 2010. The two Chuckle brothers appeared in, and won, the TV series Celebrity Coach Trip during November 2010 and as well as many other regular television appearances, they have performed in various stage shows, especially in pantomimes. In 2007 they toured panto Aladdin around the UK, Barry starring as Aladdin with Paul as his brother Wishie Washee, and the panto featuring a group of dancers known as The Chucklettes. They have had a whole host of UK Tours, including ‘Chuckle Trek – The Lost Generation’ in 2009 and ‘Barry Potter and his Full Blood Brother Paul in The Ghostly Shadows’ in 2010. In December 2011 they starred in panto ‘Cinderella’ in Hull.Read Less
