About Norman Evans

<The Times, November 26, 1962>

<MR. NORMAN EVANS>

Mr. Norman Evans, the Lancashire comedian, died yesterday in hospital at Blackpool. He was 61.

He began working in a mill when he was 14 and later became a commercial traveller for a textile firm. Later his comic gifts were appreciated by Miss Gracie Fields, who encouraged him to try his luck as a professional performer. In 1934 he had a great personal success at Alhambra Theatre, and from then on he was seen and heard regularly on the stage, on the radio, and on television. He had appeared in two Royal Variety performances and was a popular pantomime dame. In 1955 he lost an eye after a road accident.
