Can’t believe I’m writing this… RIP Reuben M Tuck! Truly one of the funniest, whip smart, joyous, down to earth (while never quite of this earth) and loveliest people on the planet. The undisputed star of my 2015 Bipolar Express doc and someone I had known since I was 18 (and he led me astray – or it might have been the other way round). He died peacefully at home in Thailand but was only 58. Absolutely heartbroken for his wife Normandy, his family and all those who loved him. FU 2020. RIP Rueb XX
You can hear Reuben talking about his bipolar with his trademark charisma, candor, humor and wisdom here:
As Bad As It Gets, the OCD sequel to my AIB award-winning doc Bipolar Express airs for the first time on RTHK July 13, 2019 @8.30! Stand by for trailers and teasers (to be released later this month). The doc’s broadcast will be followed by the launch of my Mental Ideas Podcast on RTHK Radio 3 in 2020!
Miss Adventure is a completely made up fictional character. She was born in 2012, when New York indie Summerhill TV produced an improvised skit with rock band Motorhead at Madison Square Garden. The episode aired on Funny or Die, where it (briefly) became FoD’s ‘Highest Rated Video – All Time‘. For the past few years, ‘Miss Adventure’ has shambled her way through regular comedy broadcasts on RTHK Radio 3. Any resemblance to Sadie Kaye is purely in your head, although they did meet once at a riot in Repulse Bay.
