Confused? We are too
IF SOMEONE asked you what you thought of comedian Graham Fellows, would you know who they were talking about?
But if they then asked you what you thought of John Shuttleworth and the bloke who sang the UK chart hit Jilted John, you might have far more of an idea who they were talking about.
It's relatively rare that Graham appears as Graham anywhere in public.
In his comedy guise he is variously Shuttleworth, Brian Appleton or Dave Tordoff.

As an actor he has appeared in Coronation Street, Coogan's Run and Gentlemen Please.
But at Cheltenham Town Hall on Sunday he will be appearing as loveable northerner Shuttleworth in his late 50s.
He is a fictional singer-songwriter and radio presenter with slightly nerdish tendencies.
In his current tour, Out of Our Sheds, Shuttleworth is addressing some of the major issues facing us all today.
He ventures beyond the garden gate to tread the mean streets of Britain and asks: which is better, city life or country living? Supermarket or village shop? Or is it better to sit in your shed and count the cobwebs?
Together with his Yamaha PSS portable keyboard, he charms his audience with his quirky music, impeccable timing and charming good nature.
Graham first came to prominence in 1978 when he scored an unexpected chart hit as Jilted John, a character who was named after his own alter ego
Since then as Shuttleworth, Graham has extended his musical repertoire, including recording Pigeons in Flight, a song which he attempted to have selected for the Eurovision Song Contest.
With a title like that, it's hard to understand why it was never chosen. Surely it's vintage Eurovision material?
If Cheltenham audiences are treated to a rendition of this or any other of John's songs it is worth the ticket price alone.
When he's not performing, Graham is busy writing material for his comedy characters and getting nominated for awards.
Add to this another job providing voiceovers for children's television programmes, performing on stage in theatre productions and musicals and writing and directing feature film It's Nice Up North as Shuttleworth, Graham must be one of the busiest performers around.
Tickets cost £16 from 0844 576 2210 or online at www.cheltenhamtownhall.org.uk and the show starts at 8pm.
