Roger Kitter (20 October 1949 – 3 January 2015) was a British actor best known for playing Captain Alberto Bertorelli in series 7 of the British sitcom TV series 'Allo 'Allo!. With Kaplan Kaye he also recorded a song "Chalk Dust – the Umpire Strikes Back" using the moniker 'The Brat'. Released on the Hansa label, it entered the UK Singles Chart on 10 July 1982; it reached a peak of number 19, and remained in the chart for 8 weeks. The song was a Top 10 hit in the Netherlands, Belgium and South Africa, and lampooned John McEnroe complaining about line calls in tennis ("The ball's in, everyone can see that the ball's in!"). He was also an impressionist, who provided the voice of Tommy Cooper in the Lego 'Kipper' advertisement.

A Freemason, he was a member of the Chelsea Lodge No. 3098, made up of entertainers. In 25 September 2009 he became Chairman of the Entertainment Artistes' Benevolent Fund.
