Clive James Australian broadcaster and author dies aged 80

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/amp/enter...-arts-50578512

Clive James, the Australian writer and broadcaster known around the world for his dry wit, has died at the age of 80.

Diagnosed with leukaemia in 2010, the author and critic had movingly written about his terminal illness during the final years of his life.

Born Vivian James in 1939, he moved to England in 1961 and rose to prominence as a literary critic and TV columnist.



Used to enjoy his shows.

Re: Clive James Australian broadcaster and author dies aged 80

One of my memories of his TV critic days was him describing a Demis Roussos concert. For our younger readers, Roussos was an overweight singer of some talent, but little dress sense - kaftans that looked like tents were his favourite attire; he had performed in a black tent-like cape covered with fur, and Clive described the star as, "... looking like a bin bag being attacked by a plague of rats." He had the knack of being able to drill down to the absurd and ridiculous.

Clive James, Gary Rhodes and Jonathan Miller all gone within days of each other.

All unique, all irreplaceable.
