Jeremy Hardy, comedian who'd been on QI, Mock the Week amongst many others has died of cancer.

Shit! That's horrible.

Oof, that's horrible.   Feels like I've been listening to him for half my life - my parents had some tapes of his radio show back in the early 90s.  Really funny, genuine guy.

He's also one of those guys I assumed was 57 when I first started listening to him 20 years ago.

Really sad news. Jeremy Hardy was one of the first comedians I ever saw live. My mum took me to see him in Chester when I was about 15, he was hugely respected & one of the acts nobody ever had a bad word about.

Love Jeremy Hardy. A real man of principle, and hilarious with it. 

He is, along with the Tiger Lillies, one of only two acts I've seen cause a mass walk-out at Jersey Opera House, after a couple of anti-monarchy and anti-military gags.

Love the Lillies, me!

Jeremy Hardy was a wonderful man. I remember at one gig he was telling the story of when he was doing an anti racism benefit gig and on after him was a former NF member giving a speech. When the guy was introduced he got a massive ovation for renouncing his old ways and it dawned on Jeremy that this guy got a rapturous reception for not beating up blacks any more. 

“Hang on, he’s getting the biggest cheer of the night for stopping being racist. I’ve never hit anyone and I didn’t get that applause, maybe I should have”

Had me in bits.

Clive Swift's gone, best known for being Richard Bucket in Keeping up Appearances, or this spectacularly arsey interview in Doctor Who Magazine.

That's brilliant. I can't decide whether he's actually being an arse or just having a joke and it's not conveyed well in print form..
