LONDON - Rik Mayall, one of a generation of performers that injected post-
punk energy into British comedy, has died. He was 56.
Mayall's management firm Brunskill Management said the comedian died at his
London home on Monday.
In the 1980s Mayall was part of the Comic Strip, a hugely influential group
of alternative young comics that included Dawn French, Jennifer Saunders
and Mayall's writing and performing partner, Adrian Edmondson.
