Roy Chubby Brown before he was famous
- before the teddybear quilted trousers -
still working as Royston Vasey, did two acts:
one that was clean, one that was blue.
He went to meet his agent in The Magnet,
his local, to discuss the thread of his future.
His agent told him he can compete on the clean
circuit for 15 quid a night, or go blue & get 50
until the end of his career. Royston, on reflection,
being interviewed in The Magnet, says : when
you're from this background, money is every
thing. And points to the orange seats. On
reflection : it was more me - I'll F & blind
for no fuckin money
