Over the last month there has been a lot of publicity linked to Theatre and Music Hall posters.

OTS NEWS was the first to carry a story about the subject and then the local rag followed as usual with a washed out style story.

Well today OTS NEWS discovered an interesting feature on one of the posters.

In August 1951 there was an up and coming star of the stage his name CHARLIE CLAPHAM.

CHARLIE CLAPHAM  the INCONSEQUENTIAL COMEDIAN was destined in the eyes of CARROLL LEVIS a star in the making. (Carrol Levis in the 1950’s was the X factor of the day)

Unfortunately, what a shame no one knows what happened to this talented man, CHARLIE CLAPHAM, the INCONSEQUENTIAL COMEDIAN.

If any posters on the site has any information about the whereabouts of Charlie Clapham, the INCONSEQUENTIAL COMEDIAN, could they please get in touch with OTS NEWS.

It would be interesting to know what happened to him.

It has been reported that he was last seen getting off a bus in Southport.
