The Comedy Greats We Lost in 2016

“I love people who make me laugh. I honestly think it’s the thing I like most, to laugh. It cures a multitude of ills. It’s probably the most important thing in a person.” – Audrey Hepburn

Thankfully 2016 is over. We lost many great people, the most popular being David Bowie, Alan Rickman and Prince. Here at Grintage we want to pay tribute to all the influential people that shaped and moulded comedy into what we laugh at today.

Started with our very Frank Kelly aka Father Jack.
