RIP Rik Mayall

Young Ones
Bottom
New Statesman
Blackadder

And there goes another person I used to watch quite a lot. He was loud, obnoxious, annoying and full of himself. That was Rik normally and that was why his characters worked.

It's an absolute shame. I really only know him from Blackadder; I'll have to find time to catch up on the rest of his body of work. I've heard from friends that he was amazing. So young, too.

One of the greats.

Rik, the people's poet, is dead

To mention some of the important credits you didn't...

Drop Dead Fred
American Werewolf in London

Those are probably the most memorable to Americans...
