Norman Wisdom Featuring Rick Wakeman  - A World of Wisdom
This is my description text 1. It can support html.

One of the nice things about showbusiness was that there was a little fellow around called Norman Wisdom. With an ear-to-ear grin, a loveable personality, and talent by the ton packed into his sixty-five inch frame.  He played all over the world, and starred on Broadway in musical shows such as Walking Happy, for which he won two awards, Not Now Darling, [one award] and Androcles and The Lion, etc.  He was voted “Comedian of the Year” on 5 occasions. At home, he won a British Film Academy Award for his first film Trouble In Store, which broke box office records, and starred in a further 15 highly successful comedy films.  Norman Wisdom has been a household name for over fifty years and the sheer magnetism of his name was guaranteed to fill theatres wherever he appeared.  The diminutive Londoner joined the army at the age of fourteen as a bandsboy with the 10th Royal Hussars.  When Norman left the army in 1946 he set about entertaining professionally. He was later approached by the Rank Organisation and signed a film contract.  His first Royal Variety Performance was in 1952.  Since then he was chosen for eight Royal Variety Shows and a private Christmas Concert for the entire Royal Family at Windsor Castle. Norman sadly passed away in October 2010 at the grand age of 95.  Relive some of his songs and comedy here played by Rick Wakeman.
