Rik Mayall's quotes

  • One of my hobbies is people-watching. I love to sit outside a cafe watching people go by. I use things that I see in different characters that I play.
  • I'm a difficult person to interview. Everything I have to say is in my performance. I don't like to give too much away.
  • I'm not trying to do anything spectacular except to change the fabric of our society and bring down the Government.
  • I was always a show-off and liable to get over-excited. But I have got it under control. I now find people who can't control their energy very funny.

  • I'm frightened of interviews.
  • I would love to do more on the stage; having actual contact with the audience is great. You can give them a good seeing to!
  • You perform for a different audience each night. People who don't understand just think that you go out there every night and do the same thing, but you don't - you have to find out who they are and give it to them.

  • Words on the page don't have the same impact as somebody saying the words to you.
  • I don't want people to know who I am.
  • With 1,000-seater venues, rather than 5,000-seaters, there are richer opportunities for sucking the audience in.
  • I ought to be groovy and be able to say the enemy is this and the enemy is that... but I've never been very good at... I don't want to have to answer questions I don't know the answer to properly. I have an opinion.
  • I've always had live audiences.
  • With an audience it's now, there are no editors around. It's just me and the audience and it's what I like best.
  • [on Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone (2001)] The film, with respect ... no, with no respect at all... the film was shit.
