Ah, that's sad. He was hilarious. I don't know if any Kiwis ever watched it, but he did a spoof series on the Sydney Olympics committee back in the day that was required viewing.

 

How did it happen? I assume his front fell off.*

 

 

 

 

 

*Seemed appropriate at the time

TimA: some random impersonator doing an ad


The interviews that John Clarke and Brian Dawe did on ABC are well worth hunting down.

When John left for Australia I sent him a message saying how much I enjoyed his work and wished him well. 

 

Much to my surprise, he sent me a hand written thank-you note but I regret to say I seem to have lost it.

 

Very sorry he has died.

"The Games" was awesome.

 

Try and find the  "100 metre track".

 

 

 

Actually, everything he did was awesome. Going to miss him.

 

Clarke and Dawe were always a must watch.
