*There may be a few swear words*

The People's Poet...

Rik Mayall...


Man...
Myth...

Legend...




Words don't describe the influence he had on me growing up...

& all these months later, it's still strange that comedy no longer has this Artist to shine through!!!




Enjoy my friends.



RIP Rik!!!


Bottom's Up!!!

A bizarre film and role only he could have played imo.

The energy in the dude....wow.
Went far to early and after his accident he couldn't work as much

Best Englishman ever!!

If Rik was 10 years older he would have been a Python.

When I first heard he had died, I didn't believe anybody. I didn't even believe the news until I saw it all over the internet and it hit me like a car. It was the first celebrity that I grew up watching who died and it really did knock me back, I actually mourned, I mean proper mourned for this guy and the worse part was that he was the same age as my father at the time (though Dad is now older).

I watched almost all his work and loved everyone, Drop Dead Fred being a film I watched when my own grandfather died to get out of the tears and mourning and yes it worked. I only wished we would have more time with him mainly in a jealous way because he said in an interview that he wanted to play Ebenezer Scrooge before he was too old to act anymore and that he would make a great Scrooge and I have to agree. Just imagine him as Scrooge on film or stage it would've been awesome.

I still mourn this man to this very day and will mourn him for a very long time coming. This might just be a coincidence but the night he died I was watching an episode of the Young Ones and his character said that when Rik died the world would mourn and cry they would say 'OH NO RIK IS DEAD' and it felt nerve shaking.

RIP RIK MAYALL, THE ONLY MAN WHO COULD CALL YOU AN STINKY FAT SNOT FILLED PUSS BAG AND LEAVE YOU SMILING.

LoL I knew you reminded me of someone with the moustache buddy...

I think you're right about the best Englishman ever too...

In fact having spent a whole day wondering, I'm pretty certain you're right about that.



Either him, or his father for seeding him...
Or his father's father for seeding the seeder...
Infinitum.

I couldn't believe it either Danny...

Even now, when it hits me I'm like "oh ffs"...


Your post was amazing to read...
& sad due to the timing of your Young Ones marathon.

There was so much great comedy in the 80s , Rik was a large part of the new wave who broke the mold of the old school comedians.
Here he is in A Kick Up the Eighties as investigative reporter Kevin Turvey.
