2009 obit for 'Illuminatus!' actor John Joyce

Prop Anon, busy working on footnotes for his Robert Anton Wilson biography (due out in November), posts something interesting on Twitter: A 2009 obituary for John Joyce, who played Saul Goodman in the Ken Campbell stage production of Illuminatus!

The last paragraph is interesting: "For the last 10 years of his life, he worked as a dummy patient in doctors' training in London hospitals, work he enjoyed and which paid the rent. He was unlucky in personal relationships and always lived alone, but he was much loved by many friends."

Not sure whether it's safe to use the photo from the Guardian, so I will skip the usual illustration.
