    I love the young ones and Comic Strip was one of my favourite comedy shows of all time, and I loved him in everything I saw him in. So sad

    This one really, really shocked me. RIP Rik.

    This is so sad. He was brilliant. Too young.

    ETA: Thinking I might have to pull out Drop Dead Fred for a movie night with the kids now. I vaguely recall it being a little mature at times, but in general I think it was fine? Oh well. I'm set on it either way at this point. Think I may cry harder than usual at the end.

    What a sad day. Comic genius, and sounds like he was a great person too. Way too young

    Watching Drop Dead Fred saved me in many ways during my (far from great) childhood.
    That movie made me feel "normal" because I could relate to Lizzie/Snotface as a child, and gave me hope that everything would turn out "ok" when I grew up, just like it did for Lizzie.

    RIP Rik Mayall. And thank you, thank you, a million times thank you.

    He was awesome in The Young Ones and Drop Dead Fred. DDF does have mature themes (and some like the Nostalgia Critic say it's inappropriate), but I like that it was more mature and a bit mean. The comedy in it reflected the way kids who are a bit outcast experience the world. I could relate to it, and so could a lot of other kids.

    Ha! My supposedly grown up other half spent a part of last night jumping about the house shouting "Dog poo! Dog poo!"

    He was also hilarious in Jonathan Creek (he was in an episode or two, I'm a Creek geek).

    So it was a heart attack? At 56? Hes my age. exactly. Way too young. Says he went for a run and came back and had an attack. He was still a kid. He cant die.

    ^^^
    i suspected it was a heart attack because of his age and because it said he died suddenly. heart attacks in men are actually worse when they happen to men in their late 40s-50s. my dad died suddenly of a heart attack at 51. no high blood pressure, no warning, he just dropped dead.
