Rik Mayall: “Writing Elton was a joy. He is such an unspeakable cu…character. Yet for all his terrible behaviour, and despite his knack for doing well out of wars and human catastrophes, Elton has a very British charm and elegance, he’s just gorgeous. The Last Hurrah, to me, speaks so much about the feeling of a lost Britishness; a crumbling Empire, gloriously carrying on regardless in its secret self-contained world. I adore the fact that as a club member, Elton has knocked back drinks with Picasso, Beethoven, Wilde, Ivan the Terrible, Vlad the Impaler, Hitler – all the greats.”
Anonymous asked: Do you know anything about Rik's new audio comedy called The Last Hurrah, where he plays an immortal bastard snowman?
We’ve had a look around and all we can really find is what’s on the website! Even the facebook page isn’t too informative.
The website is http://www.thelasthurrah.co .uk (obviously without the space after the ‘co’, it’s just because we can’t post links in messages now)
On the website, there’s now an option to buy series one for £12.
Unfortunately we haven’t been able to find any interviews for the show, by actors or writers etc.
Other than that, we’re quite excited about it!!!
