I just spent a minute on his twitter feed, looking for a post to make me smile..... it did not work :(



A month is a long time for "anytime". What a terrible time for him and his family.

Not quite a biography, not quite a documentary, these programmes celebrate Jeremy Hardy’s Radio 4 life, with material from his very first appearances in stand-up shows in the mid-1980s, via his own early sitcom At Home With The Hardys, and right through to his glorious appearances on The News Quiz and I’m Sorry I Haven’t A Clue – as well as the very best
