Terribly sad news this Monday afternoon. Legendary English comedian, writer and actor Rik Mayall has died aged 56, according to his management team. The cause of death is currently unknown. Mayall is best known for his comedy partnership with Adrian Edmondson, his over-the-top, energetic portrayal of characters and as a pioneer of alternative comedy in the early 1980s. He appeared in number of iconic sitcoms, including ‘The Young Ones,’ ‘Blackadder,’ ‘The New Statesman,’ and ‘Bottom’; and on the big screen in the likes of ‘Drop Dead Fred’ and ‘Guest House Paradiso.’ Mayall was seriously ill after a quad bike accident in 1998 which left him in a coma for several days. However, he made a recovery and was working until recently.
