Who Shot Alan BStard? Fan Tributes
2 Sarah Williamson from Northern Ireland: Rik Mayall is the ultimate sex god of comedy. Completely gorgeous and extremely funny too. The New Statesman is a marvellous example of how political satire should be done. His other groundbreaking projects should not be overlooked either, The Young Ones and Bottom along with his many other tv and theatre projects, keep his loyal fans catatonic with laughter every time! Long may he continue to do so!
1 martin from cambs uk: An honest look at the back stabbing mps from england, Rick Mayall was funny as usual, check out this and bottom and also the young ones, great.
