Well I guess he lived how he wanted to live, it clearly wasn't about the money.

#2 I read your comment before watching the video and wondered, how could that be. But you were right. Sad story for such a funny and entertaining man.

He didn't arrive on my radar until the early 80's on MTV. With the accent, speed of the show and English slang, I admit it was difficult to follow the humor at times but I knew I was watching someone with talent and as I adjusted found it to be very good.

I've sometimes wondered, but never Googled to see, what had happened to him. Sad for him.

All of his money, "donated" to the government?

#3 especially the "Unexpurgated" Benny Hill shows. ;)
