Alan Simpson comedy writer dies

Recommended Posts

Alan Simpson, half of comedy writing legends Galton and Simpson has died.


This comedy duo brought us ground breaking comedy such as Hancock's Half Hour and Steptoe and Son

Who can forget this brilliant piece of writing from the blood donor sketch on Hancock's Half Hour   'A pint? Have you gone raving mad?  I mean, I came here in all good faith, to help my country. I don't mind giving a reasonable amount, but a pint?  Why. that's very nearly an armful.'

Alan Simpson RIP Thanks for the laughs

Enjoyed watching that, Chulla. Whenever I think of Steptoe and Son, I picture the old man sitting in a tin bath, all bones, eating a jar of pickled onions. He drops one, fishes around in the water, finds it and eats it.
