The Ticket Archive


Photo Credits: Andy Hollingworth (unless stated otherwise)

Andy Hollingworth the renown photographer of comedians, is also a keen comedy enthusiast and historian. Along with photographing hundreds of comedians over the years he has been photographing and building up a catalogue of comedy performance tickets and memorabilia. With Rik Mayall being one of particular interest.

So together, here on the Rik Mayall Scrapbook website, we bring you the beginnings of an online Rik Mayall ticket and memorabilia archive.

If you have any tickets or special memorabilia you would be willing to lend, be photographed and added to this hopefully growing section of the website, then please get in touch with myself or Andy.

Thank you.
