It’s sad to see that Ken Campbell has died, at the age of 66. As this obituary states, “he will be known for his commercial cameos on TV, such as In Sickness And In Health or Fawlty Towers, but the legacy of his live work will be the true measure of the man.”

Beyond these effective appearances there were Ken Campbell’s televised explorations into the nature of consciousness, which were rather laboured – whereas in live performance, he was probably the only person able to hold a general audience with an explanation of qualia, in the same set as a tale of translating Ken Dodd jokes for performance in the New Hebrides.

In fact – that’s almost certain.
