The anarchic cult comic was performing at the Lone Wolf Comedy Club night at the Atic bar in Bicester when he fell ill and took a seat. Some members of the audience reportedly thought that it was part of the act but paramedics were called to the venue and he was pronounced dead.

There were many heartfelt and sometimes very funny tributes paid to him on Twitter, of which these are just a few.
