Barry Chuckle

Chris Barrie

Chris Barrie (aka Rimmer)

This Barrie was famously known for his role as annoying sidekick and flawed officer ‘Rimmer’.  Whilst many failed to realise what Rimmer meant Chris really lived up to is name – having been found in public toilets on Ealing Common (now what did the H really stand for).  Chris also later starred in disastrous sitcom Brittas Empire.  Chris is struggling to come to terms with being out of the limelight and now runs a preserve stall in a locals farmer market.

STOP PRESS – Whilst the above post was written on Famous Barrys original site, Chris’ misery has been compounded further.  He appeared in a three-part Red Dwarf special on Dave.  The series was about as funny as a sketch from Katie Brand.  Poor Chris, I am thinking of setting up a charity for the comedy unfortunates, who is with me?

Drew Barrymore

Drew Barrymore

Fashion conscious Drew Barrymore (seen above) epitomises the problems sufferred by child stars.  Think Macauly Culkin, Michael Jackson and Drew.  All had their major issues.  Drew hit the scene as an innocent little girl in E.T. – the tear jerking film about a reptile that kidnapped children by making their bikes fly.  Drew has since gone through drug and alcohol abuse but has now thankfully come through the other side.  She has starred in amazing films such as Charlies Angels and, um… Charlies Angels 2?!  Anyway, whatever happenned to Elliot?

Barry Grant

Barry Grant

Barry Grant – one of the troublesome Grant family.  Typical scally, Barry would nick his own mum’s china if he thought he could get a few bob on it.  Barry left Brookside to turn over a new leaf.  Sadly, there wasn’t much call for Scouse pop stars (just ask Sonia) – so he went back to the soap an was eventually killed off.  Mr Grant was later seen in police drama The Bill, he was chucked out of the Met once they found out about his dodgy past.  Barry now owns a sausage factory in Cheshire.

Cathy Barry

Cathy Barry

Cathy Barry

Bristol born Cathy was one of the world’s most promising adult movie stars.  Her career finished abruptly when she was auditioning for Jumper Bumpers – Revenge of the Big Ones.  The Director Ivor Biggun told Cathy she would never work again.  Not to be hampered Cathy went to a prominent surgeon to get her assets enhanced.  The surgeon couldn’t stop laughing when Cathy asked in her wurzel accent for (what he thought) “Sillycone Implants”.  Disaster struck and Cathy never really came back.  She did have a brief comebac in Paul Daniels’ 80s kids show Wizbit.  This ended when she was taken off the streets in Bristol’s red light district, by the cone hotline.

Amanda Barrie

Amanda Barrie

Another soap has-been.  Amanda Barrie (as can be seen above) was the glamourous lead actress in Carry on Cleo.  Amanda has hit on hard times after leaving Corrie.  Amanda is now fighting her demons and is serving time – as evidenced on fly on the wall docu-soap – Bad Girls

Barry Evans

Barry Evans

Barry Evans, symbolises all that is Barry.  He epitomises everything that is Barry-esque.

Barry Evans starred in British sitcom Eastenders.  He really does epitomise everything that is Barry.  Unlucky in business, his father thought he was an idiot, but most of all unlucky in love… even his fat wife, Janine murdered him.  He was later found flogging his career unsuccessfully on BBC sitcom Extras with his fat friend Ricky Gervais.

Barack Obama

Barack “Barry” Obama

 So after much ridicule and micky taking, the free world has finally recognised Barry in its rightful place.  Yes, son of a black man, but grand-daughter of a white man, Barack Obama is actually a Barry.  Barrys are on top of the world!!!!

Why did he change his name?  Well lets just imagine you were sat in the war room.  President of Russia and you decided you had enough of the americans invading your country with their fast food and rubbish cars.  When you are planning your strategic assault, would you really fear a man called Barry?

I wonder what other famous world figures are actually called Barry?  Is Berlusconi really Barry Berlusconi? Is Osama Bin Laden really, Barry Bin Laden?

Trust me, if either of those are true, we will be all over it.

Introduction to Famous Barrys

Introduction

So some of you may know us from the old Famous Barrys freewebs site.  It was a celebration of all things Barry.  Sadly we started to find the template at Freewebs a little cumbersome and people such as Scott Mills from Radio 1 stole some of our thunder on the Barry celebration.

We have now decided to come back and launch Famous Barrys as a blog.  There will still be the same collection of ridiculous meaningless attempts at humour.  There will be a vast array of Barrys for you to read up on.  We are even considering a “Where are they now” section that will highlight current work.

Anyway, sit back read the content and tell all your friends.  All hail Barry.
