Delving into the rude, serious, anarchic and hilarious, Searby highlights Mayall's spectrum of work - not the
rumours or an attempt to uncover the deeply private life he led but the more intricate moments that were
twisted into creations to make people laugh and subsequently woven in to the fabric of British culture and comic legacy.
Narrated by Searby, over 30 exclusive interviews have been lovingly, laughingly and carefully sought from
those that stood closest to him over his working years providing the inner-most workings of Mayall and all of the emotions that working next to him brought
with it, namely laughter.
As Mayall evolved over the years,
his acting, his intellect, his manic, intriguing character and his genius became a thing of interest, inspiration and celebration.
Wrapped into chapters of insight, exclusive interviews and accounts mixed with comedy, anecdotes and
anarchy, Mark Searby presents Rik Mayall: Comedy Genius
