The Patton Brothers, Jimmy Patton (born 20 August 1931) and Brian Patton (born 4 September 1934), are the two older brothers of Barry and Paul Elliot, The Chuckle Brothers. They began their career as a double act in 1954, and their father was comedian, Gene Patton.
They have starred in many a pantomime in their careers and have not missed a performance in fifty-two years.
Both Jimmy and Brian have made many appearances in ChuckleVision with their younger brothers, Jimmy taking the moniker No Slacking due to the catchphrase that he constantly has to relay to the Chuckle Brothers. "And remember - No Slacking!"
Jimmy and Brian, both come from Rotherham just like their brothers, The Chuckle Brothers. They also have a brother called Colin, who isn't an actor, and their late sister Sheila was married to the actor Bill Waddington, who played Percy Sugden in Coronation Street. Jimmy and Brian are the sons of Jimmy Elliot, a comedian who later became known as Gene Patton as there was already a Jimmy Elliot in the business. When Jimmy left school, he joined "Britain's Dead End Kids" in 1946 and performed in five pantomimes before Brian joined and teamed up with Jimmy. Jimmy and Brian got their big break in 1956 when they performed in an Aladdin pantomime as Chinese Policemen, a role that have performed 8 times since. Other roles have included: Ugly Sisters, Broker's Men, Henchmen and Chief and Dame. They have appeared alongside many British pantomime favourites as Barbara Windsor, Ronnie Corbett, The Chuckle Brothers and John Inman.
