I remember Ronnie Dukes used to do a male/female act called Dukes & Lee, despite being a bit rotund he used to do somersaults etc on the stage,

You're talking about Ronnie Dukes, he and his wife Lee were big on the club circuit when it had some gravitas. Never a Club person myself my understanding is that the scene is long gone. Greaseborough club was meant to be a good example of a thriving club
