I will always remember Rik as Colin in Bad News, the best Comic Strip ever!
Unless you count More Bad News of course!

Rik Mayall is/was exactly the same age as my dad :shock:

I was a bit too young for The Young Ones, it took a while for me to find it funny whereas Bottom was instantly funny to me.

However I really enjoyed him in The New Statesman so much so I went to see him TWICE in the theatre and I am not a theatre kind of bloke!

RIP to a really funny man, I do hope you're up there having a pint with Mel Smith.

Yeah, poor guy. Sad news. I spent a good hour last night watching some of his classics on Bottom. He had superb timing and a great face and voice for comedy.

Could not believe it when i heard, the best comedy actor of my generation.

If anybody in comedy needs to learn about ad-libbing then you have to watch Kevin Turvey.

Also every Comic Strip and Alan BĀ“Stard (haltempriceĀ“s finest MP) at his finest

Rest in peace Rik

RIP, Rik. At least Heaven is a much better place now that you're in it.

Not his biggest role, but my favourite has to be as Flasheart in Blackadder. Priceless.
