Part of the Chortle Comedy Book Festival
In a new biography, broadcaster and film critic Mark Searby examines the incredible career of Rik Mayall, delving into his rude, serious, anarchic and hilarious body of work.
Searby interviewed more than 30 people who worked with this comic genius, to produce a deep dive into classic shows such as The Young Ones, Bottom, The New Statesman and Blackadder as well as lesser-known, yet equally fascinating, moments.
Here Searby celebrates the work of a comic whose intellect and manic, intriguing character left an inspiring legacy.
In association with Chortle
This session is also included in Chortle Comedy Book Festival Day Ticket. Access to single sessions for Day Ticket holders is subject to room capacity.
