Richard Michael "Rik" Mayall (7 March 1958 a?? 9 June 2014) was an English comedian, writer, actor, and voice-over artist. Mayall was best known for his comedy partnership with Ade Edmondson, for his energetic "post-punk" style of acting, and as a pioneer of alternative comedy in the early 1980s. He appeared in numerous cult classic sitcoms, including The Young Ones (1982a??84), Filthy Rich & Catflap (1987), The New Statesman (1987a??94), Bottom (1991a??95), and Blackadder, and in the comedy films Drop Dead Fred (1991) and Guest House Paradiso (1999).
At the time of his death, Mayall was described by Danny Cohen, director of BBC television, as a "truly brilliant" comedian with a unique stage presence, whose "fireball creativity" and approach to sitcom had inspired a generation of comedy stars.


Mayall, the second of four children, was born in Harlow, Essex, to John and Gillian Mayall. He had an older brother, Anthony, and two younger sisters, Libby and Kate. When Mayall was three years old, he and his parentsa??who taught dramaa??moved to Droitwich Spa, Worcestershire, where he spent the rest of his childhood and performed in his parents' plays. After attending The King's School, Worcester, Mayall went to the University of Manchester in 1976 to study drama, where he befriended his future comedy partner Ade Edmondson. There he also met Ben Elton, a fellow student, and Lise Mayer, with whom he later co-wrote The Young Ones.
Edmondson and Mayall gained their reputation at the Comedy Store, from 1980. Apart from performing in their double act, 20th Century Coyote, Mayall developed solo routines, using characters such as Kevin Turvey and a pompous anarchist poet named Rick. This led to Edmondson and Mayall, along with Comedy Store compere Alexei Sayle and other upcoming comedians, including Nigel Planer, Peter Richardson, French and Saunders, Arnold Brown and Pete Richens, setting up their own comedy club called "The Comic Strip" in the Raymond Revuebar,
