R.I.P. Rik Mayall

Well, today marks the death of Rik Mayall, British actor, comedian and personal comedic inspiration. His work united millions of people in laughter and he kept going despite his quad bike accident in 1998. He refused to stop being the great actor he was, refusing to stop bring in the laughter, even, sometimes, poking fun at his accident, which was, undoubtedly, a pivotal part in his life.

A man whose roles ranged from historical figures to an anarchist student, from chaotic imaginary friend to genius detective inspector. It’s fair to say he specialised in the over the top characters, but to me, that’s makes his skills even more impressive.

As is always the case, our condolences are with Rik’s family and friends.
