    Rik Mayall has died

    Rik Mayall has died today, aged just 56.

    Very sad news and an end to ever seeing a Bottom reunion.

    If you haven't played a classic game in years, it's never too late to start!

    I know comedy in the UK will certainly miss him. The Young Ones was just as brilliant as anything he was involved in.

    R.I.P. Rick!

    Yep, like many here I guess I grew up watching this comedy genius in action. Such a shame and my heart goes out to his family. Rip.

    Oh man, that is sad.
    Why haven't I heard it anywhere on the media new, you would think they would mention something like this.
    Now I find out almost two months later by accident.

    Perhaps in the UK but I have not even seen an article on the media section of the news here talking about Mayall's passing

    The Netherlands, but Rik Mayall was known here for his roles in The Young Ones and Bottom.

    Nice to know he had an international audience and followers. Been some huge losses to the entertainment business this year.
