I can. I remember Chapman Brown from way back - he seemed completely off the wall. Probably ahead of his time.

 

IIRC he always sang 'Raindrops keep falling on my head'.

I dont know if its correct but someone told me thats him on the double glazing advert,the irritating bald headed nerk in the green cloak shouting "Buy one get one free I said buy one get one free now".I should imagine he,d be older though!!.:huh::confused:

just looked for the safestyle ad online and seen a story about the actor from the ad being nicked for dangerous driving in the yorkshire post in may 2010 gives his age as 45 so thats much to young but his name is jeffrey brown could it be his son?

I think Old Tup has got it in one---with the double glazing ad---I had my suspicions a few years ago when it first appeared-----and I do know that the "actor"in question is called Brown-----I SAID IS CALLED BROWN

what a brilliant act he was.very insulting to punters in audience but hilarious if he didnt pick on you

concert secretaries jobs were made harder because they couldnt get him off stage at 10.30

I used to share a pint with this guy when he worked this area.

I believe his real name is John Chapman.

He lives, or used to live in Nottingham working for the MOD

Chapman Brown & Frenchie! I'm the daughter of Frenchie. I know your posts were a while ago but if you'd like anymore info on John Chapman & Alan Ball then let me know.

Nice to hear from you Lisa. I'd forgotten about this post, it was so long ago. Must have been some search to locate this thread. Now, don't tell me Chapman Brown & Frenchie have reformed & are now topping the bill at Las Vegas?
