On the 2nd August we lost our friend Seb Patrick. Please allow us a period of radio silence as we come to terms with what's happened. Goodbye, Seb, we'll miss you.

We're raising funds in his memory to help his family in any way we can. If you're able to spare anything, it would be greatly appreciated.

    Seconded. It’d be interesting — wouldn’t it? — to track the growth of that partnership.

    Also, please explain the following term for the ignorant U.S. residents (by which I mean me):

    Comedy Police

  • It’s in my “big list of articles I need to write”. But it’s easier tossing off a shitty opinion piece than doing proper research. I will have a go at some point, though.

    The “Comedy Police” is what the cast used to call Rob and Doug – it’s mentioned in Robert’s The Man In The Rubber Mask.

  • Ah. That explains it. See, I’ve only ever been able to read things of Robert’s that he’s posted on his [expletive deleted] website. Seriously, I’ve tried getting books of his from the library; I think the librarian had to ask for an inter-library loan from British Columbia, in Canada. (And it never did arrive, either.)

    Maybe when they get back together.
