The man who literally died laughing(it's true, he had a heart problem and he collapsed on live t.v) is one of the few comedians who could deliver the punchline and make it really hurt...from laughing so much.
Famous for his recognisable get up - Egyptian fez and formal suit, and for his catchphrase -"...just like that!", T.C had a knack for visual gags, slapstick and farcial situations like few comedians I've seen today.
I especially loved the way he would mess up classical Shakespeare, viz, Hamlet. Here's a sample of what I mean: "To wake , to sleep, perchance to dream...I had a funny dream once..dreamt I was eating a ten pound marshmallow...next morning the pillow was gone..."
A great man is a deserving epitaph.
