\"Norden was born in the East End of London in 1922, and his writing career began during World War II, when he created a sketch of a force performance during his service in the Royal Air Force.
During his service in the armed forces, he met many writers and performers who will appear on the later radio and televisionwar years.
In preparation for a force show in northern Germany on 1945, he and other actors Eric Sykes and Ron Ritchie were looking for stage lights in a nearby prison.
It turned out to be Bergen who was recently liberated-
Belson concentration camp
The prisoner\'s plight moved them very much, and they organized a food collection for the victims of the camp in their comrades-in-arms.
After being deported, Norden began writing for the radio station and worked with Frank Moore on 1947.
As writers and performers, their first performance together started here and they worked together for 11 years.
He continues to write and perform on many successful television and radio shows in his 50 s, 60 s and 70 s.
It will be normal for him to start showing the film and TV show in the evening in 1977.
He retired in 2006 at the age of 84, although in 2008 he published a series of self-portrait sketches called \"The life fragment\".
