Americans may remember him from Drop Dead Fred. Promote this thread!

When the show came out on VHS in the late '90s (and on DVD soon after), we watched every episode over and over. Truly classic comedy (with some great music to boot!).

One helluva comedian. It's a sad day. Oh, and of course Allan B'Stard. The name alone always had me in stitches. (edited by dMp on 9.6.14 2102)

Loved him on The Young Ones. Some of the very best comedy of that era IMO. Shame he was in that accident. RIP Funny Man. YOUR 2012 NCCA Tournament Bracket Challenge Winner

He was golden on The Young Ones. Probably the funniest scene from the funniest episode. YOUR 2012 NCCA Tournament Bracket Challenge Winner
Was there anyone of relevance on that bus? There was a clear shot of everyone when they boarded just before it went off the cliff, and I want to say some of those characters were familiar, but I don't recall explicitly.
