Some devastating news for fans of alternative British comedy from the 80's. Americans may remember him from Drop Dead Fred.

I really love The Young Ones, I didn't have MTV when it was on (seemingly throughout the '80s and '90s) but my friends who did all were huge fans. When the show came out on VHS in the late '90s (and on DVD soon after), we watched every episode over and over. Truly classic comedy (with some great music to boot!).

His characters in Blackadder, Bottom, the Young Ones are all classic. One helluva comedian. It's a sad day.
Oh, and of course Allan B'Stard. The name alone always had me in stitches.

Even though it'd been years since I'd heard his name, it was a shock to hear he'd passed.

A truly great talent.

Me and my sister were searching all over the internet for a copy of Drop Dead Fred just this weekend.

Loved him on The Young Ones. Some of the very best comedy of that era IMO.

Shame he was in that accident. RIP Funny Man.

Rick was by far my favorite character on the 'Young Ones'.

But I'll always remember him as Colin Grigson, guitarist for the heavy metal band BAD NEWS.

He was golden on The Young Ones.
Probably the funniest scene from the funniest episode.
