LONDON (AP) — British comedian and actor Norman Wisdom has died at the age of 95.

His family says he died peacefully late Monday at a nursing home on the Isle of Man. Wisdom had suffered from a series of strokes in the months before his death.

Wisdom specialized in family friendly slapstick comedy in the 1950s and 1960s. He was known for his roles as a clumsy underdog battling against adversity. He also acted in Broadway in the 1960s, when he was nominated for a Tony Award for his work in the comedy "Walking Happy."

His filmed included "Trouble In Store" in 1953 and "The Night They Raided Minsky's" in 1968, which he made in Hollywood. His subsequent career was largely based in television.
