The Chuckle Brothers were an English children's entertainment comedy double act, comprising Barry David Elliott (24 December 1944 – 5 August 2018) and Paul Harman Elliott (born 18 October 1947).[1][2] They were known for their work on their BBC show ChuckleVision. The comedy of the Chuckle Brothers usually were slapstick and other visual gags, and their catchphrases included "To me, to you" and "Oh dear, oh dear".

Their older brothers, Jimmy and Brian, were the comedy duo Patton Brothers.

On 5 August 2018, Barry died after a long battle with bone cancer, aged 73.[3]
