Many people know of the fact that Rik Mayall suffered a brain injury as the result of a quad bike incident but not everyone realised after his accident that he suffered with epilepsy.
We love the fact that he was not defined by his epilepsy, he was Rik Mayall anarchic comedy legend who made millions laugh and cry with his insanely crazy and egotistical characters not forgetting that he was A Bastard who we all loved to hate. He was not simply that guy with epilepsy… He was a true Legend!
Riks family are in our thoughts today, a husband and father who will be sadly missed, our candle is lit in tribute.
Rik Mayall 7 March 1958 – 9 June 2014
