The critically acclaimed emotional rollercoaster one-man play returns to The Capitol. Jack Lane takes you behind Norman Wisdom’s well-known character to reveal a tough and lonely childhood. After joining the Army, Norman discovers a passion for comedy and begins to perfect an act that would go on to shape his unique style. The world of post-war Music Hall and Variety embraces Norman’s manic slapstick routine, catapulting him to stardom in the early 1950s. Success on the silver screen including the hit song ‘Don’t Laugh at Me’, seals his fame. But fame comes at a price.
