RIP Rik Mayall

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything, whether it relates to Cambodia or not.

Sad news indeed.
I grew up with the Young Ones, Blackadder ++ and Rik Mayall was a comic genius to me and millions of other Brits.

It's not mentioned it yet. But I think he had a bad quadbike crash and brain injury a good few years ago. I wonder if he had any lasting issues from that.

RIP. The Young Ones was a classic of it's time.
