    Default Rik Mayall: Comedy Genius book

    I have a new book coming out in January. It's all about the legend that was/is Rik Mayall.
    I've been writing it for about two years. More details here: http://www.marksearby.com/coming-soon

    It's available to pre-order from all ebook retailers (amazon, iBooks, Kobo etc).

    Apologises to the mods if this post is in the wrong place or not allowed. But it is Dr The Rik F**king Mayall

    Mate, it’s Rik Mayall. You can post it wherever you like.

    The word „legend“ is oft overused, but in his case it was well deserved.

    „I believe in socialism because it seems more humanitarian, rather than every man for himself and 'I'm alright jack' and all those arsehole businessmen with all the loot. I made up my mind from viewing society from that angle. That's where I'm from and there's where I've made my decisions from. That's why I believe in socialism“

    Agree about the word "legend". The opening paragraph of the book is me making a case why he should be called a Comedy Genius.

    Wouldn't have thought that takes much doing! Saw the 'Bottom' show in Nottingham in the 90's (can't recall exactly), it was rather good.

    Hey Mark,
    Can this be purchased directly from you? If not, which outlet gives you the greatest cut?
    Thanks

    Your post reminded me of this...



    Mark - love the web site and will be getting the book for my brother.
    Hope it doesn't come shrink wrapped... he'll know I've read it first if it does!

    I wont be selling them direct. I am looking into print on demand.

    In terms of digital sales, Amazon is the best.

    If you are in the London area then I'm hosting a screening of Drop Dead Fred next month.
    It's at the Prince Charles Cinema and tickets are only £10.

    Just to say, there will be physical copies of my book available in the next couple of weeks. My Gallery proof came today and I'm very impressed with it. Looks great.

    Price will be £8.99. I'll post the link soon.
