I was startled to hear the news reports yesterday that Linda Smith had died. She was way to young and I shall miss the insightful way she talked about the world in which we live.
You’re probably thinking, who the heck is Linda Smith? Well, she was one of the funniest people in the universe. So amusing, in fact that she was voted the wittiest person by Radio 4 listeners in 2002. She’s one of the few comedians who would make me laugh so hard I cried. If you check out the BBC7 web site for past editions of The News Quiz, Just a Minute and I’m Sorry I Haven’t a Clue perhaps you’ll get to hear her too.
Listen live this Friday at 12.30pm CST to BBC Radio 4 and you’ll hear a special tribute version of the News Quiz. If you can’t listen then it’ll be available via the Beeb’s listen again service after the Saturday repeat at 6.30am CST.
