RIP Felix Dexter

A comic genius passed away yesterday. Felix Dexter died at the relatively young age of 52.

I grew up watching him and his incredible characters on the much-missed Black British comedy show, The Real McCoy. Nathaniel the African accountant, the unhinged Tube ticket inspector, Douglas the ‘roots and culture’ lawyer, and my favourite, Brother Jeffers the preacher man (clip below). My family and I would cry with laughter throughout. Twitter was awash with warm words and fond memories from comedians, actors and people far and wide who loved and appreciated Dexter’s immense talent. Such a shame and here’s hoping that the BBC provide a worthy tribute to him. RIP.
