The Box Sketch

Roy Castle, James Casey and Eli Woods perform a sketch involving a box.

Eli Woods, who plays James Casey's dim sidekick in this sketch (he's on the right of the screen), has died.

The comic, from County Durham, was 91. In the 1960s he was known as the stuttering stooge of Jimmy James. After James died, he went on to star in shows including Eddie Braben's radio comedies and the film A Private Function.

He often worked with his family. Jimmy James was his uncle, and his cousin was James Casey (with James Casey being the son of Jimmy James).

Paul Daniels tweeted: "RIP Eli Woods from the Jimmy James brilliant comedy act."

Featuring: Roy Castle, James Casey, Eli Woods.
