Jason Wood's mystery death causes college comedy cancellation

The sudden, explained death of the out comedian and musical impressionist Jason Wood, known here as "the gay British Danny Gans," is escaping scrutiny from the British tabloid press but is sending shockwaves across the UK comedy scene.

Wood was set to headline tomorrow night's Three Shots Comedy Club at the University of Essex in Colchester, but due to his death the entire evening has been postponed.

A statement on the university website says:

“Jason was scheduled to headline the gig, which is now postponed out of respect for him. The Arts on 5 team were shocked and saddened to hear of his death and our respects go out to Jason’s friends and family.”

Wood had frequently topped the bill at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, but became known throughout all the classes of the UK in 2004, when he starred in, and was the first celebrity to be voted off, the hit BBC1 show Strictly Come Dancing.

I just love his presentations. Jason Wood is one of the best in this comedy industry and everyone can support me. I think I could learn a lot of things from him.
