Roy Chubby Brown
Roy 'Chubby' Brown the self proclaimed 'crudest and rudest' comedian was born in the depressed steel-making town Grangetown. He left home when he was 14.
His blue-period came to the fore after an appearance on Opportunity Knocks in the mid seventies where he came fourth to a spoon player.
His manager George Forster suggested that he should go completely blue as there were so many clean comedians around struggling to make a living.
At first he had difficulty with the swearing but now it is the swearing that the people come to expect.
He is really poking fun at himself and male inadequacy, a third of his audience are women who can relate his act to the men in their lives.
"I decided to go right over the top and be the rudest man in the country and I haven't looked back."
