At over 80 years old, beside 6'2" Alex Jennings, looking like he's between 5'11" and 6". Quite easily 6" in his 20s and 30s.

He's less than 5'9" today. There's no way he was above six foot.

Well Rob, is he eligible for a 6ft0¼ peak listing?
6ft 1/8th is an arguable value.

I think any viewing of pictures from Beyond the Fringe would show that he is at most 2 inches shorter than Peter Cook and probably 1.5 inches shorter. He always seemed tall and even in his 80s looks tall. He may have moved down to 5' 11" plus a fraction but definitely not to 5'10". Espacially if we're handing 5' 10" out to Daniel Craig and others in the 'dubious' category.

Hey Rob...happy new year!
How likely do you think just over 6ft is?
Happy new Year!
I think we are talking a guy who might have been 1/8th over, it would make sense if he measured that and told people 'just over' 6ft.

He was never more than six foot. He was clearly shorter than Peter Cook and Jonathan Miller.
