The TV series "Trippers Day" was which comic actor's last sitcom?
"Tripper's Day" is a British television sitcom produced by Thames Television for ITV. The plot centres on Leonard Rossiter as Norman Tripper, a northern manager assigned to a London supermarket with problematic staff. The programme received poor reviews and was Rossiter's final television work; the actor died between the broadcast of the second and third episodes.
The series was brought back two years later with Bruce Forsyth in the lead role, under the new title "Slinger's Day". In Canada and United States the series had a remake under the title "Check it Out!" (1985–1988). In Sweden, comical duo Stefan & Krister starred in "Full Frys", a TV series largely based on "Tripper's Day" and "Check it Out!".
Leonard Rossiter (21 October 1926 – 5 October 1984) was an English actor. He had a long career in the theatre but achieved his greatest fame for his television comedy roles, most notably starring as Rupert Rigsby in the ITV series "Rising Damp" from 1974 to 1980, and Reginald Perrin in the BBC's "The Fall and Rise of Reginald Perrin" from 1976 to 1979.
