5 Rik Mayall moments that just couldn’t have been anyone else

RIP a unique comedy great.

THE WORLD LEARNED this afternoon that Rik Mayall has died at the age of 56.

Here are some of his most wonderful, unique, stomach-achingly funny moments as a comedian.

1. Rik Mayall reads ‘poetry’ as a young standup

If you’re not into poetry you’ve come to the wrong place.

2. Richie deals with the gas man on Bottom


3. Rick plays ‘Hands Up Who Likes Me’ in The Young Ones

“Rick is dead! The People’s Poet is dead!”

4. The imaginary friends scene in Drop Dead Fred

Still as relevant as ever.

5. Lord Flashheart visits the troops in Blackadder Goes Forth

MY GOD. “Yes, I suppose I am.”

RIP Rik Mayall. Thanks for everything.
