    A sad day indeed. A fine actor and comic genius.

    Until the stigma is removed from mental illness, more people will continue to suffer in silence with tragic consequences..

    Horrible news, feel so bad for his family. Loved his films and standup.

    Turns out he had been diagnosed with the highly degenerative illness Parkinsons before he committed suicide. I guess he figured he wanted to go before it became worse.

    But it turns out he was a bit of a geek as well! Into sci-fi, anime, tabletop and played Warhammer 40k doing voice-overs whilst moving the models around. Amazing.

    See, I've heard that. I heard he played Orks pretty well. Would've been fulfilment of a dream to have a game against him..
    But I also saw a news article that said he admitted only enjoying the painting, and hadn't actually ever had a proper game.

    Incredibly sad news, but often the ones that seem the happiest are plagued with the worst demons.
