A wonderful comic and writer, his joke specs without lenses always cracked me up. RIP

Ahh the Goons - Eric Sykes co-wrote episodes for, I think, just 1 series of the Goons.

Whenever I see someone carrying a plank of wood Eric's film comes to mind and I break out into a smile.

The man was a comic genius and will be missed.
