If you've never watched "Bottom," then you've not seen some of Rik's best stuff. Great slapstick comedy.

I very much enjoyed The Young Ones and The Comic Strip. I even enjoyed Drop Dead Fred.

And then there's his World Cup anthem too! It kicks ass, quite frankly!

There was a Christmas episode of Bottom that makes me laugh out loud just thinking about it.

I seem to recall that Rik had had some sort of serious mishap in years past that put him in a coma for a while. Was very glad that he pulled through that one, but not for the long term, it seems. Sad news.

Apparently he had a quad bike accident in '98, but pulled through.
