Post RIP: Rik Mayall - The People's Poet is dead!
This house will become a shrine! And punks and skins and Rastas will all gather round and all hold their hands in sorrow for their fallen leader! And all the grown-ups will say, "But why are the kids crying?" And the kids will say, "Haven't you heard? Rick is dead! The People's Poet is dead!"

And then one particularly sensitive and articulate teenager will say:

‘Why kids, do you understand nothing? How can Rick be dead when we still have his poems?’


Anybody else here a fan of "The Young Ones" or "Black Adder"?

Funny stuff.

Bottom and the new statesman are massive classics
Not forgetting the " four men in a " comic strip specials.

Mayall could do really nasty bastards really well.

i also really loved his grim tales series

i would say that Adrian Edmondson will really miss him.

Blackadder - absolutely yes!

Bottom - less so, but still enjoyed it.

I felt that Mayall had the talent to take a more serious acting route in his later years, but it never really happened. I wonder how much his quad bike accident in 98 affected him in the long run. I suspect it was far worse than was let on

RIP
