A great comedian and writer.
A list of people he wrote for: Ronnie Barker, Ronnie Corbett, Sir Billy Connelly, Tommy Cooper, David Frost, Bob Hope, Richard Prior, Mike Yarwood, Russ Abbot, Bobby Davro, Jasper Carrott, Morecambe and Wise, Stanley Baxter, Dick Emery, Dave Allen, Frankie Howerd, Les Dawson and Danny La Rue.

He also had a number one in Finland with Purple People Eater.

A great talent and good bloke.

My 'Waiting for Clod' thread:

The trouble with the world is that the stupid are cocksure and the intelligent are full of doubt. Bertrand Russell, 1872 - 1970.
Indeed the safest road to Hell is the gradual one - the gentle slope, soft underfoot, without sudden turnings, without milestones, without signposts. C.S. Lewis, 1898 - 1963.
History is made up of people recovering from the last disaster. James S.A. Corey.

To be honest I've not heard of him but some of the other names mentioned in the article I've heard of. I know Bob Todd from "Benny Hill". It seems like that guy looked the same for several decades!

Ah, yes Barry Cryer was one of the good guys. A lot of talent across many years. I have no idea how such people steadily push out consistently good writing. I hope he enjoyed a well-deserved retirement.
