Yes, Prince Vultan was played by Brian Blessed, the man is amazingly fun to watch. Lol
Still alive, still kicking, and above all, talking extremely loudly, as is his thing.

As for the program, that's "Have I got News For You" a quiz which switches hosts about as often as the average person switches clothes. I think mr. Blessed was host for maybe 6 or so episodes.

Forgive my ignorance I do not know who he is, but I remember watching him and as an artist I remember sounds and patterns very well.
Even though he has aged at the end when he started to shout and gesture, memories of watching him in that ridiculous costume flooded my brain, and it just made me happy that I recognized him. I couldn't even remember the character he played and frantically googled "Flash Gordon winged man." Sure enough, SAME DUDE! True story.

Every day in every way I improve my skills and get better.

I have fun pressing keys on a computer keyboard carefully following certain patterns - aside from being interrupted by interactions with flesh-based entities now and then. These entities give me money for enjoying myself doing this, amazingly enough.

Yes a few things actually, but one in particular, which as you should understand, I can't exactly talk about it.

Planned launch is currently set as 2015 for that one, primarily targeting Melanoma (but with a LOT of additional indications being investigated).

From what we've seen in updates from Clinical trials it may well turn out to be quite amazing.

I think that outside the UK, he's not a particularly well known person, unless you follow comedy fairly closely.
He's played a large number of roles, and has a rather extravagant style, that you recognised from Prince Vultan. Blink
Brian Blessed's Wikipage
He also played King Richard in Black Adder.

The best part was within the first couple of days on the job, my co worker looked at me and said "Within a couple of weeks, you'll look at it and say 'Oh, they must have had (insert food) for lunch'".

Damned if that isn't true.

I can confirm that. Once when I heaved in the classroom, I'd skipped breakfast and what came out was just bright green liquid and a giant ball of green apple Big Mouth bubble gum. Man, that was embarrassing-- caught red-handed as a gum swallower. I don't think remembering that now will send me into therapy, but no guarantees.
