Leading Aircraftman Sykes Dies

#14
Sad news that Eric Sykes died, the country has now lost the last of those great British comedians and writers from the post WW2 era. Felt a bit like Milligan and Sellers passing, a sad loss for a certain generation. That said, he did have a good knock and his body of work will be remembered long after his demise...RIP and thanks for the laughs!

Despite some of the comments here, apparently not the NAAFI, I am sorry to hear of his demise. We are running out of comics who can be funny without saying '**** off you **** fuckwit, ooh look at me, I'm as cutting edge as that bastard Hirst with a ****ing cow and a chainsaw.'

The youth have lost Sykes, and gained Russell Brand; 'You lucky people!'

Middle-age maybe but I watch Live at the Apollo, with Jimmy Carr maybe the High Priest of the art, as professional sneering and crowd manipulation. Anxious 20 and 30 somethings hell bent on a 'good time right'. If you laughed at Noel Edmond's House Party then this is the next evolutionary stage; like a large clique of people too afraid to say to admit they've got no clothes on. A mass act of killing time.
