Peter Vincent

It is with great sadness that we have learned of the death on July 2nd of Peter Vincent at the age of 91.

Peter was a treasured member of Player Playwrights for many years, known for his hilarious comedy offerings, his wise and kind commentary on the work of others and his unstinting support for the group and for individual members.

He was a much loved friend and co-writer, whilst also enjoying a life time of success in the professional comedy world where he wrote around 135 TV episodes for stars such as The Two Ronnies, Frankie Howerd, Tommy Cooper and Dave Allen. He also wrote for radio, most notably with Ian Davidson the hugely popular When the Dog Dies which was transmitted on Radio 4 between 2010 and 2014 and starred Ronnie Corbett and Lisa Tarbuck. 

He will be much missed.
