Just heard on the news that the comedian Rik Mayall has sadly passed away. Damn shame as he was my favourite comedian and always brought a smile to my face. I remember seeing him as Kevin Turvey and laughed until I cried. Then when he teamed up with Ade Edmondson and first performed the dangerous brothers, well that was hilarious! The young ones, bottom, filthy rich & catflap plus numerous appearances in blackadder and the new statesman and a host of other performances this man was a comic genius. A sad day and a comic legend has gone far too soon.
