Andreas Siegfried "Andrew" Sachs dead at 86 - best known for his role as clumsy Spanish waiter Manuel in hit TV sitcom Fawlty Towers

Fawlty Towers star Andrew Sachs has died at the age of 86 following a secret four-year battle with dementia that left him wheelchair-bound and unable to speak.

The much-loved actor, best known for his portrayal of put-upon Spanish waiter Manuel in the classic 1970s sitcom, passed away in a care home last week and was buried on Thursday.

His wife Melody, who cared for him tirelessly, said: ‘My heart has been broken every day for a long time.’
She also revealed that she collapsed while caring for him. After developing acute stress, she was taken into intensive care but ‘got over it real quick’ and bounced back so that she could carry on looking after him.

His wife ought to sue John Cleese for hitting him
on the head so many times. Probably caused dementia.

Fuck British comedy and the horse ir rode in on. Pompous assholes who think they're better than everyone. Obviously Benny Hill is the exception.

Little known fact, he was always late for his scenes, because he was busy banging the female extras. This happened constantly. If you ever rewatch the show, you can notice how sometimes he walks in to a scene late and sweating.

Dude pulled alot of tail.

Never cared for Monty Python, Fawlty Towers or limey comedy in general.
Benny Hill, however, is a sole exception.

sardonic British humor, their soccer, their football, their rugby
