Biography

Streatham, London, England, UK
An amiable, beloved Cockney cut-up from the 1930s on, London-born Tommy Trinder, the son of a tram driver, quit school and sought the stage, milking laughs at the tender age of 13 in a musical revue that was touring South Africa. Following that he became a boy vocalist at Collins' Music-Hall. The wry, rubber-faced comedian gradually built up his name in traveling variety shows, clubs and dance halls, then achieved stardom in the musical revues "Tune In" and "In Town Tonight" (both 1937).
