Remembering Rik Mayall: Bottom

by on Jun.14, 2014, under Opinion, The Palace of Wisdom


Far be it for me to be impacted by a celebrity’s death, but we’ve had a fair few recently. Some rolled the changes in the world that shaped the ever-improving modern society. Some Were responsible for cultural revolutions. Others just simply made us laugh. Rik Mayall was one of them. Another icon in British comedy who has left their mark in our splitting sides.

Everyone will be in different camps to whom they associate this rubber-faced force of funny, from the hypocritical teenage whining of The Young Ones, the anarchic (sort of) children’s tale of Drop Dead Fred, or even that small cameo he played in the classic horror comedy move American Werewolf in London (He’s in there for about 10 seconds). For myself, I will always remember him for Bottom.
