I don't know what h meant to folks outside the UK, but following on from the untimely death of Mel Smith, comedy has lost another treasure. Only 56 years old, too.

That's sad news. Remember him fondly from Bottom.

Already got the 'Young Ones' box set, but have now ordered series 1-3 of 'Bottom'.

Watched a couple of episodes of 'Bottom' last night and, if anything, it's even more depraved than I remember! Miss you, Rik.

American here - but a lover of British humor - and Cornettos...
 
First saw Mel in Princess Bride - sad day - and WAY too young...

Talking of Mel, he did the odd bit of straight acting, like in 'Dancing on the Edge', where he was superb, but I'll always remember him as a hairy trucker tucking into a hedgehog sandwich.
