Charles Adolphus Williams MBE (23 December 1927-2 September 2006) was a mixed-race English professional footballer (one of the first black players in British football after the Second World War), and later became Britain's first well-known black stand-up comedian.

He became famous from his appearances on Granada Television's The Comedians and ATV's The Golden Shot, delivering his catchphrase, "me old flower" in his broad Yorkshire accent.
