RIP Tim Brooke-Taylor

The Herald reports:

British performer Tim Brooke-Taylor, a member of comedy trio The Goodies, has died after contracting the new coronavirus. He was 79.

Brooke-Taylor’s agent says he died Sunday morning “from Covid-19.”

Brooke-Taylor was part of Cambridge University’s Footlights revue, the breeding ground of several generations of British comic talent. He broke into radio and television comedy in the 1960s alongside future Monty Python members John Cleese and Graham Chapman.

I grew up on The Goodies. I watched the TV show and even got their annuals. Great goofie humour and Tim Brooke-Taylor was my favourite.

A sad loss.
