Jeremy Hardy has died

Just announced, aged 57, he was a welcome voice when the air was filled with right-wing thickos, hope it's not in poor taste to say this news is Holgon-shattering.

Very sad, a real institution of Radio 4. He actually said on Twitter around new year that he was dying of cancer, then rowed back on it and said he tweeted it out of exhaustion. Poor bloke must have been in a state.

Mrs Canes met him on a train once, got his autograph.

Or was that John Hegley?

Anyway this is really sad. Can some nasty fuckers please die now, too many nice people going.

That's absolutely gutting. Such a witty, sound bloke, I had no idea he was ill. A real kick in the teeth.

Shit! I remember some cryptic tweet he posted about how he was dying, but then followed it up saying no, not dying just very stressed etc.

Crikey.

He was great in the underrated 90s show, If I Ruled The World.
A small part in Blackadder Goes Forth too alongside all his better known work.
A sad loss.
Hope Radio 4 do a good tribute.

Sad news. I thought I'd not heard him on ISIHAC for a while.

Crikey. Not been familiar with his output in recent years but still genuine shock here at imitationleather Towers.

Damn you, 2016 etc.

I used to love his contributions to alternative comedy shows in the 80s and he was always good fun on the Radio 4 panel shows. RIP

Always liked him going right back to the early 90s, right up to his recent twitter battles against cunts. And he managed to retain his principles as so many of his contemporaries peeled off to the alt centre. RIP.

Sorry to hear this. I always had a soft spot for him, fond memories of If I Ruled the World and his appearances on ISIHAC and the News Quiz. I only saw him do standup once, where he brought out a small child to dance on stage so that his show would appeal more to the youth audience.

Very sad news. Loved Police 4 back in the day and Radio 4's panel shows were always elevated by his presence.

I met him in person once when he came over for a cuppa in a flat I was renting. Was very nice in person too. RIP

Fuck.

Did I dream this, or did he do a bit in his stand-up about the word 'cunt' that went along the lines of:

"I know it's a hateful word and that it should be eliminated from every enlightened person's vocabulary, but without it how can you drive?"

That's shocking. Never consumed much of his stuff but recently listened to his Chain Reaction interview by Jack Dee. He did a film which took me ages to track down online called Jeremy Hardy vs. the Israeli Army (2003), which I remember being decent. I also remember him from a comedy show in the 1990s, can't remember the name of it. The only bit I remember is him and a woman are lying on a bed watching telly. Jeremy goes "You see these bodybuilders bodies are so big their penises look smaller by comparison" and the woman turns to him and goes "What's your excuse?" At least I think that was Jeremy. Also the "I have to admire your balls" feeder line in Blackadder.

Why do all of the good ones die young, and all of the twats live forever? Michael McIntyre's going to make it to 150, motorbike gangs or not.

Oof, I'm only talking about being, IMO, talentless not Hitleresque, sorry Mikey. Maybe we can get Jeremy back by trading in one of Farage's nine lives?

Terribly sad - what a lovely, funny and politically sound man he was.

As a child, I loved him playing the boom guy on Rory Bremner's Now Something Else on BBC2. I used to memorise his monologues and repeat them back to my friends. I remember one about having body odour that could strip wallpaper that was a particular hit.

RIP

Always loved his 'singing' on ISIHAC.
Was lucky enough to be at a few recordings when Jeremy was on and the excitement of what was about to come when it was his turn was always fantastic.
