Tommy Trinder
Birth: Mar. 24, 1909
Death: Jul. 10, 1989

Comedian, Actor. Thomas Edward Trinder was born in Streatham in South London. He left school early to work at Smithfield Meat Market, but gave up that job at the age of twelve to go on a tour of South Africa with a variety company. Back in England, he worked on the music halls for twelve years, calling himself Red Nirt (a palindrome of his surname), then, in 1939, made his debut at the London Palladium, first as a support act to Flanagan and Allen and, later, Ben Lyon and Bebe Daniels; then in his own show, which ran for 939 performances. He made fifteen films, notably "The Foreman Went to France" which was scripted by J.B. Priestley, and "Champagne Charlie", in which he played the Victorian entertainer, George Laybourne. In 1955, he became the first host of television's "Sunday Night at the London Palladium" and, in the same year, was appointed as the chairman of Fulham Football Club; a post he was to hold for 21 years. In 1975, he was made a Commander of the British Empire in recognition of his work for charity. (bio by: Iain MacFarlaine)
