Yes, I agree. I cannot abide Eastenders, but he was a very funny comedian. He once told just about the funniest joke I ever heard, and I've remembered it word for word. I cannot repeat it here though.

For me, his version of 'There once was an ugly duckling' was a classic - it always brought a smile to my face .

I learned with sadness of Mike Reid's death a couple of hours ago on BBC News 24.

From the time I first saw him on The Comedians in the early 1970s he has always brought a smile to my face and I admired his acting skills in EastEnders.

One of the Freeview channels regularly showed recent recordings of his stand up routine and, although he could use very strong language at times, it never seemed to bother the audience, probably because they were laughing so much.
