norman lovett sf on the hill promo
NORMAN LOVETT, popular comedian and ‘Holly’ from Red Dwarf will be in Bexhill on 13th October for Sci-Fi on the Hill! 😃
Bio: Born in Windsor, Berkshire, Norman was well into his thirties before he decided to become a stand-up comedian.
He played the original Comedy Store many times and even supported the Clash, one of the personal highlights of his career.
Television and radio followed a few years later, bringing with it the role for which he is best known, that of “Holly“, the ships’ computer in the BBC hit sitcom Red Dwarf.
Norman played Holly throughout the shows’ 1st & 2nd series, before returning at the end of series 7 & featuring throughout series 8.
After Red Dwarf, Norman had his own BBC2 sitcom called “I, Lovett“, in which he played an eccentric inventor (also called Norman) and appeared in Bill Bailey’s sketch show, “Is It Bill Bailey?“He appeared as Dr. Lovett in the short-lived sitcom “Asylum”
His standup work has a quiet, almost dead-pan feel to it, which occasionally spills into surrealism.
He considers himself to be a stand-up comedian that can act!
