Bruce Forsyth (born February 22, 1928) (real name Bruce Forsythe-Johnson) is a British entertainer and showman who achieved celebrity on the show "Sunday Night at the London Palladium ", and has since presented game shows such as "The Price is Right", "Play Your Cards Right", "The Generation Game" and "You Bet".
He is especially well-known for his catch phrases, "Nice to see you, to see you nice"; "It's gonna be a good night tonight if you play your cards right" and "You get nothing for a pair - not in this game" (both from Play Your Cards Right); "Give us a twirl, Anthea", "Good game, good game" and "Didn't they do well?" (from the Generation Game) and "Brucie Bonus".
In 1998, to celebrate his 70th birthday, Forsyth appeared in a week long run of his one man show at the "world" famous London Palladium theatre, culminating in a special 90 minute edition of Sunday Night at the London Palladium being televised live on ITV
Forsyth also served as guest host for one episode of Have I Got News For You, in which he took the opportunity to parody many of the clichés that seem to follow him around on whichever show he presents.
He was born in Edmonton, North London, and attended the Latymer School, Edmonton.
Trivia:- He was once nicknamed "boy Bruce,the mighty atom"
