Sci-Fi Scarborough Confirm Red Dwarf Comedian for 2016

Norman Lovett

Sci-Fi Scarborough announce the second guest from their stellar line up for next years event in the shape of legendary comedian, actor, raconteur Norman Lovett.

Best known as Holly from Red Dwarf, he has been on the radar for SFS since it's inception and the organisers are delighted to have finally landed him.

SFS Co-organiser Steve Dickinson said:

"We are slowly & surely ticking off names from our master list of genre stars that we have always intended to bring to Scarborough, and Norman is a great addition to next year's event, We are thrilled."

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.

He can be heard in a new sit-com for R4 later this year called 'To Hull & Back' with Lucy Beaumont and Maureen Lipman.

Lovett enjoys attending comic-cons saying:

"The Red Dwarf fans are great and there are so many that were not even born when we started making it."

The announcement of Lovett's appearance follows news that Babylon 5 star Claudia Christian will also attend SFS 2016.

Sci-Fi Scarborough 2016 is on the weekend of the 9th & 10th April next year and tickets are available from the Spa Box Office. For more details visit
