Where Is Rik Mayall? …Oh Wait, There He Is!

Ah, I’m so pleased to see his insane face again!

Today, Mr. Adrian Edmondson put this photo up on his Twitter feed with the caption:
“Writing with this complete bastard today…”

Excited?
I know I am!

* UPDATE!
(From Marion McMullen of The Coventry Telegraph of all people and places)…

THE boys from Bottom are back in a new show which sees Rik Mayall and Ade Edmondson revive their cult characters Richie Rich and Eddie Hitler.
(Actually, it’s Richard Richard and Edward Elizabeth Hitler. Get it right Marion McMullen of The Coventry Telegraph!).

The pair have swapped their filthy flat for the sandy shores of a tropical island in the six-part series.

Ade said: “It’s been a while since I last worked with that complete b****** Rik Mayall and I’m very much looking forward to bashing him about the head with various blunt objects. It’s the only language he understands.”

The show, called Hooligans Island, will be on BBC2 next year.

It is one of a series of new comedy commissions announced at the Edinburgh International Television Festival, including David Mitchell and Robert Webb in Our Men.

The show, billed as a comedy drama, stars Mitchell as the British ambassador in the fictional country of Tazbekistan and Webb as a devious diplomat.

Another show sees Father Ted writer Graham Linehan team up with Steve Delaney to bring the comic’s creation Count Arthur Strong to television.

The character, a pompous self-styled showbusiness legend, will feature in six half-hour episodes.

Executive producer Gregor Sharp said: “We are absolutely delighted to see Graham and Steve join the immensely talented group of writers and comedians making brilliant shows across the BBC channels.”
