TIM BROOKE-TAYLOR
« on: Sunday 12 April 20 14:01 BST (UK) »
Tim Brooke-Taylor has died of coronavirus aged 79 - report via his agent.

I loved the Goodies, I'm Sorry, I Haven't a Clue and I'm Sorry, I'll Read That Again. What a great team player and so funny.

RIP

I saw the news and then wondered how many younger people have heard of him.

We've got some Goodies episodes at home, including the infamous one. How many comedians can say that some actually did die laughing at a sketch?

The Four Yorkshire Men sketch is fantastic and how they were not all cracking up I don't know.

R.I.P. Tim

The Ecky Thump one, where someone laughed so hard watching it he had a heart attack and died.

Edit- Episode is called Kung Fu Kapers :)
