I always think of the League of Gentlemen when I hear his name but that's it really, he is an unfunny fat chav.
You do realise that most of it is self deprecation, and one of the catch phrases, is the audience shouting 'you fat bastard', repeatedly, mostly when he first appears on stage.

Like it or not, Chubbs is one the most successful UK comedians and mostly performs at venues which are sold out.

I guess, it all boils down to whether you like strong comedy, such as by Chris Rock, Richard Pryor, Denis Leary, George Carlin, Mike Reid, Jimmy Jones and the like.
