RIP John Fortune

Another sad loss to the world of entertainment as its been revealed that the brilliant comedian, satirist and writer John Fortune lost his battle with leukaemia today aged 74

In the 1960s Fortune was one of the founding members of Peter Cook's Establishment Club alongside his long term comedy partner John Bird, known as 'The Long Johns'. The forty plus year strong partnership perhaps reached its peak when in the 00s, they appeared in Channel 4's Bremner, Bird and Fortune performing effortless semi improved sketches each week that were the show's absolute highlights.
