Simpler times... when you could build an entire career on just one joke.

Met Norman a few times he was a gent and always made you laugh, he didn't have to say anything he was a great comedian and gent, the current comedians are poor in my opinion. RIP

So true, the new crop of comedians are poor. Norman Collier, Les Dawson, Eric and Ern all greats and gave pleasure to young and old alike.

Another sad day in British Comedy History.

RIP Norman

A naturally funny man. Not many around any more.
It only happens all the time.
