News: Those We Have Lost In 2019

2019 is probably the worst year for comedy deaths since Beyond The Joke launched. Maybe it's in part down to the original 1980s wave of alternative comedians getting older, maybe it's due to life on the road and the general stress of a career in comedy and/or showbiz/acting taking its toll, but it's been sad to see some great names young and old and from both sides of the Atlantic Iand Oz) leave us in 2019.

Here is a round-up of just some of those figures who will be missed.

Ian Cognito

Jeremy Hardy

Clive James

Stephen Moore

Michael Sleggs

Rip Torn

Freddie Starr

Windsor Davies

Tony Britton

Joe Longthorne

Jonathan Miller
