More About David McPhail
He worked alongside Jon Gadsby, his longtime comic partner in crime, and became famous for portraying Sir Rob Muldoon in landmark sketch shows A Week of It as well as McPhail and Gadsby.
He additionally appeared in the Barry Crump-style yarns of Letter to Blanchy and as a straight-talking teacher in Seven Periods with Mr. Gormsby.
Tom Scott, writer, and humorist announced he had been bracing himself for McPhail’s passing, given his recent health problems, adding McPhail was the most important of the Christchurch trio that included Gadsby and A.K.Grant, who contributed so much to New Zealand television and theatre.
“He was also a terrific stage actor and was fantastic in Seven Periods of Mr Gormsby. He saved the show and the kids loved him. He was such a sweet man, a very kind man. He could be the funniest man you could ever meet in your life,” Scott said.
