The Slammer - Characters
Ted, the Governor
He's in charge of HMP The Slammer, the only prison in the
world where the inmates get to perform one of their talents in order
to be released to freedom.
The Governor loves entertainment, and plays the host of the weekly
Freedom Showday. He always enjoys a nice sandwich.
The Governor's nephew, he's new to The Slammer. He used to be an
ice cream seller, but he couldn't keep his job for some strange
reason. Jeremy isn't one of the more intelligent prison wardens,
and has been known to let notorious comedians escape.
Frank Burgess thinks he's one of the best prison wardens
in the country and has a noticable dislike for prisoners Melvin
Odoom and Peter Nokio. He also helps The Governor host the weekly
Peter Nokio (and Titch)
A so-called puppeteer, and his puppet. Peter Nokio is desperate
to get out of The Slammer. However, his talents let him down most
of the time. Peter shares a cell with Melvin Odoom.
Titch, always ready to play a prank on one of the prison wardens,
is very sensitive and gets the occasional asthma attack.
Melvin got stage-fright at the Royal Variety Performance
and has very little chance of getting out of The Slammer. He's a
song and dance man and always looks on the bright side of life.
