or really dead?!
I smell bullshit.
Shock Controversial comedian Jim Davidson died in a Jamaican hospital this afternoon aged 55. He was admitted to the Victoria Jubilee Hospital, Kingston, in the early hours of this morning (21st Feb) with a kidney complaint, and was later found hanging in a treatment room in the hospital. An initial presumption of foul play has now been ruled out, and a verdict of suicide appears more likely.
He died in Victoria Jubilee Hospital, Kingston, Jamaica at 1510 GMT on Thursday.
Surely if you find some hanging you'd initially presume suicide even if you didn't rule out foul play to be a possibility?
only taken 45 minutes to rule out foul play and stick it on wikipedia.
Because he might not be dead?
That's a long time away. He COULD die by then.
giving him stick at a pantomime (on his Wikipedia page) nearly made me wet my undercrackers.
In the 1970's his act contained a lengthy, indefensible parody of black people where he plays a "character" called Chalky White. Paradoxically his portrayal of West Indian culture in the UK had made Davidson a cult icon in the Caribbean where Davidson had for some years made his home for six months of the year. Last month Television Jamaica (TVJ) paid tribute to him at the recording of a proposed TV show entitled "This Was Your Life", in front of an audience of 600 friends and fans.
He told them: "Chalky's going to be with you for a long time yet!"
"By using a central theme of political correctness gone mad, he covered everything from sexism, racism, fattism, ageism and probably a few 'isms' that so far remain unnamed. He even threw in a story or two about the mentally ill."
He's a card, isn't he?
Yes, you're a fucking wanker
