RIP Rik Mayall

Growing up in the Eighties, Rik Mayall burst forth from nowhere and shared his comic genius. He was a man for his time, and of his time. The world hated Margaret Thatcher, and the youth needed a response to Thatcher-ism. And here it was, in one convenient package. They were brilliant times for comedy, and this astonishing, brash and out-there comedy was just what we needed. You will be missed Rik. Thank goodness for the video legacy you have left. RIP.
