I'm 11 years old and I'm stood at my white MFI desk in my pink bedroom, in a bungalow, in Redditch - home to Rik Mayall, Kevin Turvey and me. I'm holding a purple and black spotted furry photo frame about the size of a passport and wondering what to put in it...

Speaking of Grief

It was an arresting image - to see the faces of our comedy elite with the coffin of such an iconic figure. An unintended tableau of England's great and talented comedy pioneers - who have shaped the 80s. And it was weird seeing people you know a bit - only a bit mind - with the coffin of someone who means a lot.

Before last Saturday, the only stag do I'd been on was my own father's. It was a sleepy, pints-and-darts affair in a pub, though there was a moment where Dad's four brothers persuaded him to stuff a whole egg in his mouth...

Chickens are ALREADY clean! we raved. It's not like the bird, once plucked, is allowed out to roll around in the dirt one last time! Chickens aren't carrots - they're not sprayed with pesticides prior to sale! What are you LIKE, you crazy chicken washers?!

So I've hit a major brick wall. A brick wall that seems to want to stay for a while. I'm at a point in my comedy career where I'm too good to be doing 5 minutes of unpaid open mic spots in front of 73 comedians and 1 audience member falling asleep in the back row...

22 Jump Street - The Review

The film-makers treat the audience with a degree of respect, and even though many of the gags seemed to go over the heads of many teenage cinema goers, for a fan of meta comedy such as Mike Myers' finest works, this was like catnip.

The day has finally arrived, where we can all openly admit that we're active Internet daters and not be embarrassed about it. I myself first started doing it when it was desperately uncool - in the days when it was just for people who wore ill-fitting jeans and national health glasses without any sense of irony. I was one of those people, but at least I had the decency to have lenses in my glasses.

People Say You Should Never Meet Your Heroes... Those People Never Met Rik Mayall

Andrea Mann | Posted 10.08.2014 | UK Comedy
Andrea Mann

Rik was ridiculously charming, funny and generous - and clearly loved by the crew around him. He was also, I was embarrassed but delighted to learn, flirtatious. After the chat and the autograph, one of the crew took our photo together: I put my arm around Rik, he put his hand on my bottom. But it wasn't, I hasten to add, the slightest bit creepy or slimey. It was funny, and brilliant. Clearly, this man wasn't making a play for me - he was just absolutely making my day. It was, in short, pretty much the most perfect meeting-of-a-hero you could wish for.
