Marine Tavern DJ To Step In AS Barry Chuckle’s Replacement


The world of comedy was shook yesterday with the news that Barry Chuckle, one part of the Chuckle Brothers passed away. But one local DJ has promised to ‘stand in’ and take over from Barry.

John Jenkinson the DJ in The Marine Tavern will work alongside the surviving Chuckle Brother Paul.

John told Newry Spud:

“I’m very saddened to hear Barry has passed away. As someone who looks like him I can see a big opportunity for me to work alongside Paul to keep the legacy alive and well. I will leave the final decision up to Paul if he wants to take me up as Barry’s lookalike but the choice of course will be up to him or to me or to him or to me….”
