Rik Mayall

The Last Hurrah

Rik Mayall is Elton, the last remaining snowman.

Elton is celebrated throughout Britain as the wonderful, kindly gentlemanly epitome of innocent fun and charity that he is. A favourite of children and adults alike, Elton is the eternal living reminder of all that was once great about being British.

Wait. This is wrong. This is bollocks. Elton is a complete bastard!

The Last Hurrah is a much feared, secret English gentleman’s club where all real power is brokered, all the worst deals are shaken on, all the most sinister conspiracies are hatched, where even the Marquis de Sade was thrown out for being too boring.

Elton’s drinking partner is Bonjour Hellfire. Bonjour is a disgraced former Blackpool ventriloquist. He is hapless, spiteful and resentful. Once the highlight of the ordinary man’s Saturday night, he is now a pitiful old wreck of a has-been who even his oldest and most devoted fans wish they couldn’t remember.

Don’t get us started on Randy Hardy…

Prick up your ears and bow to Rik Mayall’s comic majesty. This was his last great work. His last great character. His last hurrah.
