The story of Tony Buffery: Utterly Buffery - The short but special comic career of Tony Buffery - Comedy Chronicles - British Comedy Guide "He was not the Syd Barrett of British satire nor the Stu Sutcliffe of the Pythons, nor, ipso facto, Tony the half a bee. He was an internationally respected neuropsychologist, he was a naturally and prodigiously funny person, he was an individualist, he was a free spirit, he was sui generis, he was his own, his very own, A.W. H. Buffery, PhD (Cantab) Footlights (Hons). He never missed out on anything. It was just the rest of us who missed out on him."
