The Royal Television Society are happy and proud to welcome the Chuckle Brothers to talk about their extraordinary television careers.
Rotherham-born Barry and Paul Elliot have been better known as the Chuckle Brothers since they won Opportunity Knocks in 1967. Over the intervening fifty years they have carved out a unique television niche. Their beloved children's show, Chucklevision, ran for over twenty years on CBBC. They've made dozens of guest appearances on other shows from 3-2-1 to Comic Relief. Recently they've been elevated to cult status after their famous catchphrase "to me, to you" was sampled by the rapper Tinchy Strider. And they appear in Leeds hotfoot from their triumphant appearance at Bestival.
They will be interviewed on stage by Louis Barfe, who has written extensively on British Light Entertainment. There will also be a chance for the audience to ask questions.
