Meet The Cast... Roger Kitter is an Ugly Sister

Roger Kitter



Educated at Clifton College Bristol, Roger left school after 'O' levels to pursue a career in show business which at the end of this year will have spanned 40 years.

It is very rare for any performer to be able to combine a career which combines stand up comedy and acting., but he has managed to do this very successfully.

He has appeared many times at the famous London Palladium 'opening' for international stars including Diana Ross, Dionne Warwick, Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons, Petula Clark, and the legendary Perry Como.

Roger has also starred in West End farces such as 'Run For Your Wife','Pyjama Tops' and 'What No Pyjamas?' and toured nationally in the farce 'Women Of A Certain Age'. He also appeared as 'Oberon' in William Shakespeare's 'A Midsummer Night's Dream'.

He received rave reviews when he starred as Howard Cunningham in the musical version of the hit TV series 'Happy Days'.

As a presenter, auctioneer, and after dinner speaker Roger appears at numerous corporate events and golf days (he plays to a 15 handicap) and is regularly to be seen at most of the top West End hotels for clients such as 'Daikin Air Conditioning', 'Coca Cola', 'The Insolvency Practitioners Association' and 'The Ford Motor Company', to name but a few.

Television and Radio have played a major part in Roger's career, constantly appearing in shows such as 'Birds of a Feather', 'Get Back', 'Goodnight Sweetheart', and 'The New Statesman'.

He is probably best known for playing the cowardly Italian officer 'Captain Alberto Bertorelli' in the hugely successful BBC series 'Allo Allo', which ran for ten years and has had yet another re-run on BBC 1 this year. He also starred in the West End version of the show which toured nationally and culminated in a record breaking run in Australia. In 1997 the entire team got together for the last time to perform the show in Bournemouth for the season.

A regular BBC Radio 2 broadcaster Roger starred for eight years in the series 'The Impressionists' before developing his career by devising his own BBC Radio 2 quiz 'The Names The Game', which ran for nine years.

Roger made quite an impact on the music scene with his hit record in the 80's, a send up of tennis ace John McEnroe called 'Chalk Dust The Umpire Strikes Back' released under the name of 'The Brat'. Not only was it a big top twenty hit in the UK, it reached no 2 in Holland, no 4 in Belgium, and no 8 in South Africa.
