Ground-breakingly brilliant, off-the-register funny, compassionate and caring
A glorious friend and a mischievous comedian - a clown and a commentator all at once
Jeremy Hardy was a one-off. Part genius, part naughty school boy . . . there was no one to match him for his brilliant understanding, his satire and his straightforward ability to make us sob with laughter. How many evenings he made he radio theatre rock with delight.
Jeremy Hardy was so special and brilliant and mischievous, a miracle of a person.
Unfussy, unshowy, principled, self-deprecating, hugely loved and admired by his fellow comedians, and funnier than the lot of us put together. A unique comedian and a lovely man.
