Alas Smith and Jones (UK)

While fellow performers Rowan Atkinson and Pamela Stevenson then struck out on their own: one starring in Blackadder, the other forsaking TV for a new career in psychology, Smith and Jones opted to stick with sketch comedy and in doing so formed one of the strongest comedy double acts on British TV.

    When Mel Smith passed on, Griff Rhys-Jones led a tribute to his comedy partner on the Twitter social network and stated "I still can't believe this has happened. To everybody who ever met him, Mel was a force of life. He had a relish for it that seemed utterly inexhaustible. He inspired love and utter loyalty and he gave it in return. I will look back on the days working with him as some of the funniest times that I have ever spent. We probably enjoyed ourselves far too much, but we had a roller-coaster of a ride along the way. He was a gentleman and a scholar, a gambler and a wit. We are in a state of shock. We have lost a very, very dear friend."
