Saw the thread title and thought, bugger me he must be dead. (Didn’t notice the date of the OP, tbh).

Rick: This house will become a shrine, and punks and skins and rastas will all gather round and hold their hands in sorrow for their fallen leader. And all the grown-ups will say: "But why are the kids crying?" And the kids will say: "Haven't you heard? Rik is dead! The People's Poet is dead!"

Always made me laugh... particularly in The New Statesman. I knew he had a bad motorcycle accident years ago and thought he passed away... but had to check a couple of weeks ago.

Was one of my favorites. I still have DVD's of all the BOTTOMs including the stage shows. I still snigger when I think of the Gas Man episode.

Agreed. I wonder why they didn't get him?

How come he's starring in a film about a Zoom meeting? I thought he died quite a few years ago.

How can Rick be dead when we still have his poems?

I remember my mum hating me for watching Bottom as a young lad.

There's an episode where his (Richie Richard) legs are in casts, and at the end of the episode Eddie Hitler's mates throw Richie in the air and his casts shatter into pieces.

The sound and the look on Rick's face...that was a real pant-wetting moment.

The brutal beating of the poor Gas man was probably the funniest moment in the Bottom series for me

I’ve posted my Globus/ night on the beer with Rik Mayall before (may have been the old bored?) but what a throughly nice bloke he was and an absolute scream.

In short I was on a works night out and one of the lads spotted Rik and went straight up to him with the “Rik! Mate! How you doing? Let me get you a beer!”

We’re all dumbstruck, Rik gets the drink and joins us for the whole evening.

My pal says to Rik later on “...so how do you know Nigel?” He says “I don’t, just seemed a laugh to join in!”

Maybe had to be there :( but it was funny. I’m crap at typing stories.

Same for me. I also always love that fight over the chess game. Eddie's talk to the camera while he keeps slamming Richies head with the fridge door cracks me up every time. Likewise when they tape that guy to the ceiling. Also the fact Eddie ahs an emergency pint on him on the Ferris wheel. :lol:

Rik Mayall is in my top 5 funniest people all time. His facial expressions alone were hilarious.
Bottom had some great moments, definitely agree about the Gasman.
One of my favorite bits was this, "Sellotape the sausage to the fridge!" :lol: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PEXolN0LiW0

You did all right mate. Sounds awesome. :thumbup:

Would have loved to have met him in such circumstances. I was a massive fan. Favourite character on the Young Ones, Bottom and The New Statesman was also superb. A sad loss at such a young age.

Richie: Well... I'm still all in favour of eating him. I mean, it doesn't matter about the gas problem, we could have him cold. :lol: (The way Eddie looks at Richie here)

Eddie: I don't like the look of him.

Richie: Well that's not a problem - we'll sellotape a picture of Sue Carpenter over his face. You'd soon tuck in then, wouldn't you! I know I would.
