Such sad news, enjoyed watching the majority of shows he was in, some I never got chance to see, as comedians go the others I enjoy watching are sketches/movies from the Monty Python crew Rowan Atkinson and Morecambe and Wise.

I just heard myself, I am so saddened by this, he was one of the best ambassadors for the new wave comedy movement that defined my generation and I will miss him very much.

Like you Falcon, I woke and discovered through reading everyone's tweets that the people's poet has passed. It's a very sad day indeed, and being brought up with a british father I was inundated with all kinds of british comedy. From Benny Hill, Eric Sykes, Monty Python, Fawlty Towers, and the great Young Ones.

But to say who is a comedy legend? Rik definitely, Ben Elton, Nigel Planer, Ade Edmonson.  I could go forever, but let's not forget Billy Connolly.

Seinfeld , & Ricky Gervais the Extras , & the Office UK, watched em' a few times now,  to early to become legends but funny ,

Michael Crawford made me giggle along with John Cleese & a few other English actors from different shows.

New Zealand"s own Billy T James was funny as bro, thou the tv shows were not (NZ Legend)

Jennifer Saunders was a classic female performer

Some Black American comics have got good shows as well from the 90's ,maybe more family orientated

I didn't get a chance to watch many overseas shows growing up so I missed out on alot of the shows some have mentioned ,the ones I've mentioned were specially viewed on a " when can" basis
