I propose a montage posted by fellow fans of Rik Mayall at his best. He used to make laugh so hard to the point of crying. RIP.

Worst.
Death.
Ever.

I'm utterly gutted. :(

Rik Mayall was one of the few comedians who could consistently make me laugh out loud. And his screen presence was overwhelming.

A former colleague of mine knew him and she told me that he was a lovely man privately as well.

A sad loss.

Sad news. Loved Rik Mayall in The Comic Strip/New Statesman/Blackadder. I was never a huge fan of the slapstick stuff but he was a comedy great.

Why couldn't it have been Tony Robinson instead?

Sad sad news. Very,very funny man.

In The Independent today...

A Welsh fan sent him a request for an autograph in 2008...

His reply...

Rik..."Here you are you cheapskate, money grubbing Welsh cunt- Wheres the fucking envelope you deformity??" (He, the fan, had forgotten to enclose a pre-paid envelope!) :)

The above, is badly scribbled out and is still very legible. He then begins again, just below the above...

"Here you are Daniel, thank you so much for writing. I hope you like the picture.
Best wishes my dear fiend....Signed... Rik Mayall.

Opening my own Twitter to stop another bastard from doing it. So fuck off and do not expect to hear from me anytime soon. Love Rik.

Apparently there is a still from this doing the rounds on Facebook, of the bit where Ade looks around and finds Rik gone. :(
She battled through in every kind of tribulation,
She revelled in adventure and imagination.
She never listened to no hater, liar,
Breaking boundaries and chasing fire.
