How sad - he's been one of my heroes for about forty years - since I was about 14. A very talented man who contributed so much to British comedy. And a lovely person to boot.

I'm a huge Python fan, but never got this guy.

I like to think he'll be remembered more for his work with the Bonzo Dog Doo Dah Band than Monty Python. I'm a fan of both, but I'm The Urban Spaceman really entertained this 13-year old at the time.

They didn't mention his time in Grimms with the Scaffold: Mike McCartney, Roger McGough and John Gorman, and others such as Vivian Stanshall. I saw them live in the early seventies and I just about wet myself laughing. God bless you Neil!

I love the Brits, even though some hate us. The Life of Brian is unmatched for comedy

Without The Rutles... there would have been no Beatles. Cheese and Onions.
