Sir Norman Wisdom - Live On Stage

Forty years a household name and Britain's best loved comedian, Sir Norman Wisdom is the most astonishing phenomenon in post- war British entertainment.

With his undiminished ability to delight and enchant audiences, Sir Norman displays the full range of his talents in this great live stage performance - clowning, joking, and singing some of his best loved songs, including his own compositions. He also plays the saxophone, piano, trumpet, clarinet, posthorn and drums just as well as he plays the fool.

The humour of Sir Norman Wisdom is timeless and universal. His 'downtrodden little chap' first earned him a BAFTA award for "Trouble in Store" in 1952 and he has been voted Britain's top comedian many times since.

"Live on Stage" captures the essence of the King of the Clowns - a mixture of pathos and side-splitting comedy - for you to watch again and again.
