I never found Rik Mayall funny. But then I have never found bodily fluids or hitting people funny and that was his act. To be honest, the whole alternative comedy thing passed me by. It was southern, Oxbridge, anti-working class, elitist and as funny as root canal surgery without an anaesthetic. Right on has always put me right off, whether it's comedy, religion or politics.
It's a huge shame that Rik Mayall has died so young.
It's a much bigger shame that Bill Hicks died even younger.
