Phil Jerrod dies aged 42

Jerrod suffered from a rare type of tissue cancer

Comedian and Mock The Week star Phil Jerrod has sadly died at the age of 42.

His passing was announced in a statement by his agency, Off The Kerb, this weekend.

Jerrod suffered from a rare form of cancer called sarcoma, which affects tissue, bone, and muscle. It is not known how long he had been diagnosed with the illness but it did not stop him from continuing to make others laugh.

His Mock the Week co-stars and fellow comics have been paying tribute to the “kind and talented” star on social media.

Angela Barnes, who previously started a Just Giving page for the charity Sarcoma UK, described Jerrod as a “great friend” and said “life won’t be the same again” in her post below.

Meanwhile, Lloyd Griffith said: “Such awful news. Not only was Phil really bloody funny, but he was the nicest man you’d ever bump into. Thoughts and prayers with Beck. Cancer can f*** off.”
