Sean Hughes: Comedian, actor and writer dies aged 51
    2017-October-18  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

Irish stand-up star and BBC quiz show panellist Sean Hughes has died aged 51.

Richard Bucknall, his former agent and promoter, said the “formidable*” comic died at a hospital on Monday and would be remembered for his “superb wit.”

Hughes was a team captain on “Never Mind the Buzzcocks” on BBC Two and had his own Channel 4 sitcom, “Sean’s Show.”

Fellow comedians, including Al Murray, Katy Brand and Jason Manford, have been paying tribute to the performer, who was also a writer and actor.

In 1990, Hughes — then 24 — became the youngest person to win the coveted* Perrier Award — now known as the Edinburgh Comedy Award — at the Edinburgh Festival.

“I was told that I had won the Perrier Award as I walked off stage after another sweaty performance,” Hughes later wrote in The Guardian. “The judging panel rushed on to the stage to congratulate me.

“Will it go to his head? I doubt it. If the panel had made it 10 minutes earlier, they would have seen two people walking out of my award-winning show.”

Nica Burns, director of the awards, remembered him as “a huge talent” and “a very good writer” who had “instinctive* timing from day one.”

Comedian Al Murray recalled being inspired by the star’s off-beat* humor.

Katy Brand described him as “a brilliant comedian.”

Hughes had a varied career, including a role in the hit film “The Commitments,” in which he played Dave, a talent scout* for Eejit Records.

The London-born Irish star also played station master Mr. Perks in the award-winning London play, “The Railway Children.”
