BBC has just reported that Rik Mayall has died aged 56. No further details at this time...

Oh man - that is just sad news.

I got a Guardian push notification through. Bit of a shame when somebody relatively young like that dies. I loved The Young Ones and Bottom. He was recently in that show with Greg Davies, but it was a bit naff so I've forgotten the name of it.

Man down.

It was a bit naff but I enjoyed it. Even funnier the second time I watched the series.

I'll remember him as PRik from The Young Ones, Flashheart from Blackadder and Bottom.

That is sad news. I grew up with the Young Ones and did a playback show with Living Doll in Elementary School once. Me being Vivian though, complete with stars on my forehead and a (fake) nose ring.
Always been a fan of British humour and Rik was and still is one of my favourits. I'm going to watch Guest House Paradiso now in his honour.
