Storyline

Royston Vasey, a.k.a. Roy 'Chubby' Brown, is Britain's rudest comedian, infamous for his outrageously racist, sexist and homophobic gags. It's an accolade that's meant he's never been allowed to perform on TV. But this has turned out to be more of a blessing than a curse as he's done very well for himself off the back of his army of fans buying his videos, DVDs, audio cassettes and show tickets. But how different is Roy Vasey from his stage persona 'Chubby' Brown? Film maker Will Yapp follows him around for a few months in 2005 and attempts to find out, following Roy as he goes on tour, re-visits his home town of Middlesborough, shares his family life and prepares for his first appearance on TV in 18 years on The Frank Skinner Show. Are the bigoted, offensive jokes he tells on stage just his act or personal views with a nastier edge to them? Written by davidgraham83@hotmail.co.uk

Roy Chubby Brown, one of the best people to come out of Britain reveals just a little more to us as he offers a delve into his own life. He displays to us how he works and what he does when he not working, as well as the highs and lows of his work even when things go wrong. The best thing about this guy, is that this nonsense about watching what your saying just simply doesn't apply, and this is what makes him great. People everywhere cry about freedom of speech but yet you can of course say anything apart from.....(Get what I mean?) Chubbs pushes things to the limits and shows us how its done, the only shame is that decently half educated buffoons criticise his work with fancy English jargon, according to their own tastes, failing to understand under all that stuck up bravado, the reason why they invented the word 'BIAS'.

This is a man who has done well for himself despite multiple hardships, and should be commended accordingly. This I believe should be - Britains Funniest Comedian.
