Play your cards right: The late Bruce Forsyth in 1980. Check bottom for credit

The R&H doffs its cap to Bruce Forsyth, who departed for the Great Game Show in the Sky this past Friday (18/8/17).



Like many in Britain, we at the Rake & Herald were sorry to hear of the passing to Spirit last week of veteran prime-time TV entertainer Bruce Forsyth, aged 89.

And we could think of no better tribute than that paid to him by legendary comedians Peter Cook and Dudley Moore, themselves stalwarts of 1960s and 70s television.

Click on the YouTube vid below to hear them celebrate Brucie's unique talent by way of their alter egos Derek and Clive.

He really was very chummy indeed.




And if you're not too squeamish, hear the rest of D&C's Ad Nauseum album here.

Meanwhile, for full multimedia effect, you can watch them at work in the studio by clicking this.

Go on, enjoy yourself!
