Quote from: Sebastian Cobb on September 16, 2023, 10:48:10 AMCheers for this, starts off nice, and was expecting it to end in sadness 'cos, you know, but I didn't realise how much, and how protracted the falling apart behind the scenes was.
Quote from: Dangerous Brother on September 16, 2023, 11:35:04 AMThe amount of Ade hate in the Mail comments is ridiculous. People saying that Rik was the funny one and that Ade was jealous! Ade more than held his own in that pairing, and even though I found Rik the funnier of the two ultimately, Ade arguably had greater range - look at the different characters he played in The Comic Strip, for instance. No time for Ade hate in my house!

QuoteMany young diverse comedians in the 80s did not receive a break and it's because of privileged unfunny men like these two. They kept millions down and out of work.
Quote from: kalowski on September 16, 2023, 01:02:45 PMLook at this comment.I just want to give Ade a massive hug and let him know that he and Rik were the formative comic actors of my youth.
Quote from: Pink Gregory on September 16, 2023, 10:35:53 AMthat image of Ade carrying Rik's coffin still guts me
Quote from: Dangerous Brother on September 16, 2023, 09:35:08 AMIt's a great read, pretty moving and funny, although I was surprised by the reveal that Ade submitted the Hooligan's Island script to the BBC thinking it would be turned down so it would officially end the double act!
Quote from: thr0b on September 16, 2023, 11:28:17 AMEqually, they both accepted it wasn't working and abandoned the project rather than produce something neither was enjoying doing. Which says a lot about both of them really - neither publicly blamed the other -
Quote from: Dangerous Brother on September 16, 2023, 01:11:26 PMHow did they keep anyone out of work? I don't think I've ever heard Rik and Ade described as any kind of gatekeepers.
