"NO! NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO!"

Echoed. Absolutely stunned to hear this earlier this afternoon. Rik Mayall was my first serious comedy hero when I was twelve, to the extent that when I was trying out different spellings of a shortened version of my name I settled on Niki, inspired by Rik. Many adults were horrified, which pleased me greatly at the time.

I saw Rik's stand-up show at the local theatre when I was 16. Funniest thing I've ever seen.

I was so sad when I read this today :( I don't think I've laughed so hard in my entire life as I did over Bottom.

I know. It's one of those that was an actual shock and I didn't think those existed any more with our culture of celeb watching as well.
