The comedy world and beyond is paying tribute to Jeremy Hardy who has died of cancer aged 57.
Over on Twitter there were lots of his one-liners being shared as well, of which these are just a few.
‘People say I’m self-deprecating, but I don’t think I’m very good at it’ Jeremy Hardy. ❤️

"It's deceptive, the universe, 'cause from the outside, if you're God, it looks quite small. But when you're in there, it's really quite spacious, with plenty of storage." JEREMY HARDY

And there was this amazing rant on Radio 4’s News Quiz.
Jeremy Hardy, the master of the never-ending, can't-breathe-with-laughter rant. Incredibly sad.https://t.co/cscqiHl4uI

But probably the most shared Jeremy Hardy moment is this one, a one-minute glimpse into his brilliance that you’ll want to listen to again and again.
It’s from Radio 4’s I’m Sorry I Haven’t a Clue and, well, have a listen for yourself.

RIP Jeremy Hardy.
So sad to hear Jeremy Hardy has died, such a funny guy and probably the number one person I associate with the News Quiz.
I recommend listening to this performance of him singing "Hallelujah" in his honour:https://t.co/QlRw4Dm715

The glorious Jeremy Hardy may be gone, but he’ll never be forgotten.
I challenge anyone to listen to this and not feel better for having done so.

RIP Jeremy Hardy, absolutely brilliant comic & incisive satirist.
Bizarrely also I’ve just discovered his version of Hallelujah in the style of George Formby is the only one I’d tolerate. https://t.co/SVjcFFSulH
