R.I.P., Mr. Rik Mayall


One of the funniest U.K. actor/comedians ever has passed on at the age of 56. I'll always cherish his madcap punk comic antics on the early '80s cult classic television show The Young Ones and his peerless performances on Blackadder, The New Statesman, Bottom, et al. For you youngsters out there not familiar with his work, check out these clips from The Young Ones above. Rave on, Mr. Rik Mayall!
