I was very fortunate to have known Tommy, in my mind one of the comedy greats of all time. I have countless DVDs and unlike some comedy it is still funny today. I remember years ago being in the old downstairs Martin breese studio, showing him one of my pet effects which he could have easily worked out and performed it, but I later got a letter from him asking if he minded if he used it, how things have changed.

True. A different moral code.

You are certainly fortunate to have met him, I only admired him as a punter. Wonderful performer, in the realms of genius.

Great memories, in 1989 we had a mini hurricane here and iI lost a lot of things in the flood, worst of all I lost boxes of potos, wedding day , kids when they were Young etc. Fortunately my mother had copies of most of them but my potos with Tommy are gone forever. I only have one now very faded, but the memories have not faded.

I'll bet. Great to hear your experiences, George. Not everyone quite appreciates how brilliant he really was. Wish I had met him.
