I'm really sorry to hear that.

A truly great Olympian.

Have to say I am somewhat saddened by the demise of The Word mag.

Hope it can continue online in some form.

Just overheard someone in the office talking about him. A true comedy great and much underrated. A 'Roughyed' to boot. RIP.

A truely great comedian and comic writer. All the more impresive when you think he was deaf from his early 40's and had to lip read the other actors lines in his shows.
I can still remember watching Eric and Hattie on the black and white telly in the 60's.
