I doubt many of you will have heard of him but British comedy legend Ken Dodd has died aged 90. He was considered to be the last comic of the music hall tradition and once held a Guinness World Record for telling 1500 gags in 3 hours.

One I'd never heard before but it made me chuckle:

"So it turns out, if you bang two halves of a horse together, they don't make the sound of a coconut."

Just read a comment on german Internet how sad it was that Hawkeye is dead.

I recon Prof Hawkins would have laughed with me ...

Yeah. On the other side of that, it’s impressive that he made it this far with his condition, I don’t know if I could live that long with such physical impairment. Relying on people around you for everything just to live is incredible.

65 year-old actor Harry Anderson has been found dead in his North Carolina home by local police. No foul play is suspected.

Anderson played Judge Harry Stone in Night Court and culomnist Dave Barry in Dave's World. I think I'll remember him best for his guest appearances as scam-artist Harry the Hat on Cheers.
