Norman Lovett: LOL 🙂: Gilded Balloon, Teviot, Edinburgh, 2010
Arnold Brown’s 80th Birthday: The Comedy Store, London, 2016
Norman Lovett has been performing stand-up comedy for over 40 years. I was lucky enough to see him deliver his solo show LOL 🙂 at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in 2010. The show was filled with pre-occupied explanations of modest indulgencies like finding a new place to rest his sunglasses or the art of buying plastic bags to clean up after his dog. Quiet, imaginative nonsense is Lovett’s way of aimlessly reflecting on a unexciting existence. With his vast experience, it was a joy watching this comedy master deliver plenty of laughter.
