EXPECT to hear “to me, to you” and the occasional “oh dear, oh dear” when the Chuckle Brothers return to Scarborough for their new show this weekend.

Brothers Barry and Paul Elliot are practising their sword splicing skills ahead of the swashbuckling adventure Return of the Pirates of the River Rother, in Stranger Tights, which comes to the Futurist Theatre on Saturday afternoon.

The sea-faring tales sees the boys on a theme-park water ride.

In a tunnel, they lean on a wall and get magically transported back in time to a world of pirates and sunken treasure.

Starting at 2pm, the show is full of “magic, mystery and mayhem, with fun and laughter for all the family, including grandmother”, says a spokesperson.

The due are most famous for their TV show Chucklevision which started in 1987, and their comedy usually derives from slapstick and other visual gags.

The new Chuckle Brothers show will return for weekly performances at the Futurist in the summer.
