1. Eric Morecambe

Eric Morecambe was a fantastic English comedian who worked together with Ernie Wise and formed an amazing group called Morecambe and Wise.

The tragedy happened on May 27th, 1984, after he had a stunning performance at a charity event in Tewkesbury with the goal of raising money for disabled facilities.

After he made the crowd of 400 people laugh and have the time of their lives, the comedian left the stage to welcome a band, but during the musical number, he came back on the stage, laughing and pretending to play instruments.

When he went backstage for the final time, he suffered a heart attack, which was actually the third one he suffered in the last 16 years of his life. Even though his wife, who was part of the audience during that show, said that Mr. Morecambe was in top form, the star was pronounced dead soon after the incident.
