Frankie Howerd

Frankie Howard was a a British comedian, who among other things, starred in the TV comedy series Up Pompeii! as the slave Lurcio.

Each week Lurcio would try and sort out the problems of his owners, avoid trouble, and attempt to complete "the prologue". Howerd often addressed the audience using asides that the other characters couldn't hear (a device that harks back to classical theatre), often commenting on the script, sometimes complaining that everyone else got the good lines.
