We were very sorry to hear of the passing of comedian and actor Bobby Bragg.
Bobby worked as warm-up man on many series of Only Fools and Horses and then played Don, the Nag’s Head barman, in Rock and Chips. He also appeared in episodes of dozens of British comedy series including Open All Hours, The Upper Hand, Don’t Wait Up and Ever Decreasing Circles.
“Bobby was a lovely man and a terrific comedian,” says Jim Sullivan. “Being a warm-up man at the studio recording of a TV comedy isn’t an easy job. There’s a lot of stop-starting and Bobby was brilliant at compering the evenings and keeping the audience happy and entertained during technical breaks.
“Bobby had an infectious enthusiasm for his job – and was always smiling. My Dad thought a great deal of him, which is why he was cast in Rock and Chips. Our thoughts are with his family.”
