Roger Kitter (20 October 1949 – 3 January 2015) was an English actor best known for playing Captain Alberto Bertorelli in series 7 of the British sitcom TV series 'Allo 'Allo!. He had previously appeared weekly with Lulu throughout the 10-week run of her 1973 BBC1 series It's Lulu. With Kaplan Kaye he also recorded a song "Chalk Dust - The Umpire Strikes Back" using the monicker 'The Brat'. Released on the Hansa label, it entered the UK Singles Chart on 10 July 1982; it reached a peak of number 19, and remained in the chart for 8 weeks. The song was a Top 10 hit in the Netherlands, Belgium and South Africa, and lampooned John McEnroe complaining about line calls in tennis ("The ball's in, everyone can see that the ball's in!"). He was also an impressionist, who provided the voice of Tommy Cooper in the Lego 'Kipper' advertisement.
