DER BRITISCHE ENTERTAINER, TV-MODERATOR UND SÄNGER DES O'CONNOR IST GESTORBEN

15.11.2020 Der am 12. Januar 1932 in Stepney (London) geborene britische Entertainer, TV-Moderator und Sänger Des O'Connor ist am 14. November 2020 gestorben. Über 40 Jahre lang war er der wohl erfolgreichste Fernseh-Entertainer Grossbritanniens. Er war aber auch immer in Konzertsälen und auf Theaterbühnen zu erleben: Mit über 1'200 Auftritten im London Palladium war er z.B. Rekordhalter auf einer der angesehensten Londoner Bühnen.


'Ultimate entertainer' Des O'Connor dies aged 88

Des O'Connor once said that all he did was walk on to the stage, chat to the audience and sing a few songs.

It was a formula that made him one of Britain's best-known stars, an old-fashioned showman who could turn his hand to almost anything - fronting his variety programme, hosting chat shows or presiding over the quiz Countdown.

An almost ever-present face on UK television, he held the record for more mainstream appearances on the small screen than any other performer.

Des O'Connor obituary

All-round entertainer whose readiness to take a joke against himself was key to his success.

Stuart Jeffries

"He can't be a comedian - everyone will laugh at him!" 

Des O'Connor, who has died at 88, was born so poor he got rickets, and fainted when he stepped on stage - but despite his mother's immortal words - he became one of Britain's best-loved acts.

Christopher Stevens

"He loved being on stage - entertaining a live audience. He always said the sound of laughter was like the sound of heavenly music."
