Norman started performing supporting punk bands in his early thirties before becoming part of the alternative comedy scene at the original Comedy Store in London. He started appearing on TV programmes which included The Young Ones BBC2, The Tube Ch4, Rab C Nesbitt BBC2, Keeping Up Appearances BBC1, his own series I, Lovett and of course Red Dwarf BBC2. He sees himself as a comedian that can act and he continues to perform stand-up.
‘Despite his years Lovett embraces modern pop culture, with a speciality in Sugababes trivia.’
The National Student
‘A masterclass in how to hold the audiences attention with the lightest of gestures.’
The Sunday Times
‘Lovett is a true original’
‘One of my favourite comedians is Norman Lovett. What I particularly like about him is that he can make something funny out of absolutely anything.’
He can be heard in a new sit-com for R4 later this year called ‘To Hull & Back’ with Lucy Beaumont and Maureen Lipman.
He enjoys attending the comic-cons ‘The Red Dwarf fans are great and there are so many that were not even born when we started making it.’
