Going back to a topic we haven't discussed for a while, the TV show "The Comedians". It appears two more of the cast died in 2014 but stayed off the radar as neither got UK obits:

Bryn Phillips in February (79, cancer) > http://www.walesonli...omedian-6745892
and
Alan Fox in May (77, cancer) > http://www.shieldsga...n-fox-1-6645275


EDIT: And Brian Carroll died in October aged 84. http://www.thestar.c...ed-84-1-6916616

Study finds the funniest comedians most at risk from premature death: http://www.abc.net.a...dy-find/5947460

Was the study simply "looking at Wikipedia"? Cos I think we all could have figured that out really and a lot of us were aware of it to some extent. And if they don't end up dying of drugs or drink they get some other shit luck like cancer, or they get heart attacks from a life of energetic stage antics Bill Hicks Eric Morcambe Peter Sellers Tommy Cooper Andy Kaufman John Belushi John Candy Graham Chapman Marty Feldman Mitch Hedberg Sid James Richard Pryor Peter Cook Rik Mayall ( :( ) Phil Hartman Robin Williams Stephen Fry (tried to off himself) Chris Farley Phyllis Diller Shit, even Benny Hill? Also, all of The Goodies are still alive.
