Poor guy. Apparently he was addicted to codine.
Mel Smith RIP
A naturally funny bloke writing and performing genuinely funny material.
A great loss to the world of comedy....Mel Smith, Dave Allen, Spike Milligan...yet Victoria Wood is in fine health.
If there is a god he has a funny sense of humour.
Very sad to see him gone but he brought many of us a lot of joy. So I thank him. RIP.
I remember watching Alas Smith & Jones just before getting in bed when I was at primary school.
Sure I saw somewhere that Matt Lucas and David Walliams used Mel as a base for the character Andy in the wheelchair.
I never really understood the comedy back when I was a kid, but remember him and Grif looking at each other in the dark.
Lots of funny memories from my teens watching this guy. Genuine comedy genius, a much over-used term these days but not in this case.
RIP Mel and thanks for the laughs.
