    Sad sad news
    I had the great privilege of watching him and Ade Edmonson do Hooligans Island live many years back. It took me days to stop hurting from all the laughing.

    Really sad news. That's my childhood all over. Young ones, Bottom, Blackadder, Drop Dead Fred to name a few. Bottom Live was absolutely awesome. He seemed to live twice as fast as everyone else, so it feels like he's died at 112 years old - a fair innings!
    I like simple, slapstick (sticks, pans, clicket blats, anything really!) humour and he appealed to that in the best possible way.

    Ade Edmondson:

    Ade Edmondson has paid tribute to his comedy partner Rik Mayall who died aged 56.

    Edmondson said that he loved working with Mayall, who he acted with on classic British comedy series Bottom and The Young Ones.

    The actor said in a statement: ‘There were times when Rik and I were writing together when we almost died laughing.

    ‘They were some of the most carefree stupid days I ever had, and I feel privileged to have shared them with him.

    ‘And now he’s died for real. Without me. Selfish b*****d.’
