He was definitely one of my favourites, from the Young Ones, right through to Lord Flasheart, I thought he was hilarious.
A sad loss.
RIP Rik.

I just loved that series that he did as Alan B'Stard, the arch Thatcherite MP. Was up to the third episode before I realized it wasn't a documentary. With this world of ours facing grim prospects we can ill afford to loose a good funny man.

what a comedian, what a loss so young may he be with those of his ilk up there causing much serious laughter.
