I'm posting this mainly because he's one of the few famous people I've ever met but more importantly the nicest and the funniest.

I met him as a 17-year-old in a London pub whilst on a college trip. Despite me and my pals being a bit drunk and a bit loud he sat with us for nearly an hour telling jokes and asking us all in turn about ourselves. He then left but not before slipping a tenner behind the bar to buy us a round.

Incredible experience at the time and a great life memory that I often remember. I met a few celebs on that trip, not sure why but he's the one who sticks out as a person.

A great Northern comic writer who didn't have a chip on his shoulder. RIP

I'm with you Vasty , he wrote for the comedy greats and without using profanities. Always entertaining to listen to. Altogether one of the best. RIP

Fantastic comedic writer but also very quick mind with his impromptu one line retorts.

Seem to remember a bit of a rugby man too (although may be wrong) but sure he often picked out in the crowd along with Parky at the Challenge Cup finals over the years but could be getting confused.
Unofficially the most boring poster on Cherry and White.

A very funny man indeed. I used to love to listen to him on I'm Sorry I Haven't a Clue with Graham Garden. Tim Booke-Taylor et al. RIP Barry
