Alas, Mel Smith

For anyone who’s ever laughed, ever, the death of comedian Mel Smith is a sad occasion.

Here’s a favourite sketch.

Remember these dialogues? He was “one of the beautiful people.”


  1. There's nothing that comes close in NZ today (with the possible exception of 7 Days).

    Dave Mann

  2. Used to love watching Smith & Jones with my folks when I was younger, very sad news.
