Pete the jakey aka Jake D'Arcy is meant to have died. Gregory's girl, still game etc etc.
Looking for links/confirmation.

If true, a crying shame. I remember him from Tutti Frutti in particular, but he always seems to have been around.

I used to know the girl that played his still game onscreen wife, and she would talk about having to go to his local in Kilmarnock so they could appear as a couple :lol:

 

It's confirmed. http://www.dailyreco...ributes-5789769 RIP Jake.

Michael Palin and Ronnie Corbett were out yesterday promoting the new series of stamps featuring comedians from our point of view a mixture of live and dead ones.

"Tom Koch, a creator of the vexingly convoluted game of 43 man Squamish for Mad magazine and unheralded author of thousands of comedy scripts for Bob and Ray radio programs that in his words parodied “pompous versions of real people,” died on March 22 at his home in Laguna Woods, Calif. He was 89." http://www.nytimes.c...at-89.html?_r=0
