Comic actor Sir Norman Wisdom has died aged 95, his son has confirmed.

I met him about six/seven years ago and he was still smiling as usual.

What a great bloke.

Whatever will Albania do now?

Very sad. He was one of my all time favourite comedians. And a very good actor too.

My parents used to take us to see his films, when we were young. They were always good fun. So sad to hear Norman has died.

Mr Grimsdale will not be best pleased at all.

I must be the only one in Britain who could not stand his pathetic and trite act (can't call it comedy 'cos, to me, it just wasn't funny)

I liked Norman Wisdom, but can't stand Lee Evans, who seems to have borrowed huge chunks of his act and added vast amounts of perspiration.

btw celebrities seem to pass away in threes, so Tony Curtis, Norman Wisdom who's next?

I too liked Norman Wisdom, good, clean humour, no smut combined with knockabout comedy. The whole family could watch his performances and have a good chuckle and he also had a decent singing voice - he wrote ‘Don’t laugh at me cos I’m a fool’ and sung it with such pathos, he will be missed.

I think that he must go down in history as one of the great comedian actors. I aso liked the more serious side of his acting in his later life. It will be a "Goodbye Norman Wizzbum", as my boys called him when they were young.

People forget that he was quite a good musician having learnt to play the trumpet and clarinet with the Army before the 2nd World War. He was also a champion boxer in the Army.
