For those who knew of him: Which was your favourite Rik Mayall character?
Rik sadly died yesterday, at just 56, he went far too soon & as my comedy hero growing up, it hit me harder than I thought it would.
Widespread tributes have come from the likes of Stephen Fry, Kevin Spacey, Eric Idle, Ricky Gervais & of course, his long time friend & working partner Ade Edmonson. So I felt like asking this as my own little tribute to one of Britain’s finest comedy talents & much loved master of his trade.
Loads to choose from, The Young ones, Comic Strip Presents, The New Statesman, Bottom, Blackadder.
I don’t expect many posts, most of you have probably never heard of him, but that’s okay, it feels right anyway.
