Goodbye, legends of comedy
This was about a week ago, but when I tried to post it, the forum was down, so I'm posting it now

Wow! I didn't know.

For me, these guys represent the opposing branches of British comedy that was my youth.

Kelly, from the Carry On / Benny Hill / Are You Being Served sector of which I could never understand the appeal.

Mayall, was Alternative Comedy (Ben Elton, Blackadder et al.)

I preferred Sam Kelly in his straighter roles like:






And Rik?
It is hard to believe that Flash is dead.





I will celebrate his life tonight.

Kelly's catchphrase in Allo Allo was actually "TLER!"...

Everyone else would say "Heil Hi..." And he'd finish it off with "tler"

Well fuck me sideways. I had to research this and you, my good sir, are absolutely right. This is the series that I grew up with and I never heard it the right way. I was just reading the comments on youtube and it seems that about 50% of people think like I do (did) while others are trying to correct them with the explanations.
