British performer Tim Brooke-Taylor, a member of comedy trio The Goodies, has died after contracting coronavirus. He was 79.
Brooke-Taylor's agent said the comedian died from COVID-19
Fellow Goodies star Graeme Garden said Brooke-Taylor was "a funny, sociable, generous man who was a delight to work with".
"Audiences found him not only hilarious but also adorable," Garden said.

Brooke-Taylor was part of Cambridge University's Footlights revue, the breeding ground of several generations of British comedic talent.
He broke into radio and television comedy in the 1960s alongside future Monty Python members John Cleese and Graham Chapman.
Brooke-Taylor then went on to form The Goodies with Garden and Oddie. The trio specialised in slightly surreal sketches incorporating visual inventiveness, slapstick and songs. Their song Funky Gibbon even became a UK top 10 chart hit in 1975. Their TV show, which ran throughout the 1970s and early 1980s, was a hit in Britain, Australia and New Zealand.
For more than 40 years, Brooke-Taylor was also a panellist on BBC radio's much-loved comic quiz show I'm Sorry I Haven't a Clue.


RIP TImbo.
