    Blackadder's Lord Flasheart, or the absolutely hilarious real-life Rik Mayall has died.

    This is so sad.

    Mayall's roles were the opposite of political correctness, hilarious like that American hilarious show (MadTV) that did not survive the political correctness censors.

    Here are some highlights from Blackadder in which you will also recognize Rowan Atkinson and the young Dr. Greg House.




    In addition to Black Adder, Mayall was also hilarious in Bottom.

    Rik Mayall was a comic genius. He, more than anyone, personified the alternative comedy movement in the UK in the 1980s and the reaction to Thatcher's Britain.

    His characters were unforgettable - Kevin Turvey, Rick in the Young Ones, Alan B'startd MP (largest majority in the House of Commons) and of course the peerless Lord Flashart in his various generational incarnations in Black Adder.

    He was 56, but had had a terrible quad bike accident some 10 years ago which left him with epilepsy and needing daily medication, however, few at the time expected him to have survived that crash at all.  As yet, his death is unexplained.

    Very sad - he was one of me and my wife's favourites.  RIP Rick Mayall. Today the sun shines a little less brightly.

    I need say no more than what Jonesy has written.
    Very sad. Also one of my favourites. I grew up alongside all his characters.
    A bona fide comic genius.
    Light up the heavens Rik. You will be missed greatly by all your family and fans around the world.
