Rik Mayall was always an idol of mine. I was barely 7 when I first saw him on The Young Ones. He would go on to become my favourite comedy actor of all time. I remember when i was 16 and first started work. I was left on a machine with someone who didn’t like me much despite how amicable I tried to be. It turns out he was a fan and things became a lot easier between us, we’d spend most the day reciting the scripts of Riks TV show Bottom.
Today marks the fifth year of his passing away, but I’ll never forget the laughs he gave me. Thank you Rik Mayall. Give Lordy a good kick in the bollocks.
Well 2016. No other year has played on my tears so much as far as I can remember and thats saying something. Aside from personal losses the Grim Reaper has harvested a plethora of loved celebrities and childhood heroes. It also saw a chance at parenthood which was tragically ended soon after it had began. At one point I thought id lost Vic as well.
However it wasnt without its good points. My 40th birthday was great, and going to see Knightmare Live in London with the lads was terrific. Had some successful book hunts with Victoria and been to some lovely places geocaching. We have our little kitty Drutt, and ive immortalised my name in several more publications. Maybe I should write my own? 2017 will see much change so I shall ask this at a later date.
Chat soon, Jam
