    Rick Myall

    Ok - he deserves a thread.
    Heck he deserves a kick in the bollocks and maybe a Vivian headbutt!

    He died this week, but had been in poor condition after an accident a few years ago and hadnt done any new work for a while.

    Very sad to lose such a great comic talent.

    I still love shows such as Young Ones, Bottom and his appearances on Black Adder were great.
    The live Bottom shows almost caused me injuries from laughing so hard.

    Gone - but the laughs will live on for a long while.

    Maybe this needs some youtube of his best scenes.

    I still wonder why it's so hard to find streaming episodes of The Young Ones. I managed to find S1E1 the other day, that was some good stuff.

    This house will become a shrine, and punks and skins and rastas will all gather round and 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? Rik is dead! The People's Poet is dead!"
    The Young Ones (and by extension, Rik Mayall) is completely immortal.

    Was quite gutted to see this on the news the other night. Have been planning to buy The Young Ones complete series on DVD for some time, but may fast track it now. Don't think i ever really watched Bottom, but it may be worth a purchase too.

    R.I.P.
