Don't you hate it it when they tear your ticket in half like that! What a comedy line-up, though. Alumni Rik Mayall and Ade Edmondson, with Nigel Planer, as the Young Ones - I don't remember Christopher Ryan doing it, though I could be wrong. Plus Rik Mayall's character Kevin Turvey from A Kick Up The Eighties. Brilliant.

Hiya Paul, I'm a photographer and comedy historian. Ive built up a series of photos of 4500+ artefacts from 1820 to now to tell the story of British Comedy and many of them relate to Rik Mayall and The Young Ones.

Ive shot Lise Meyer's archive which includes some amazing items but this is the only example of a ticket from this tour Ive managed to find yet. I've been shooting ticket stubs on very hi-res so they'll print a metre wide. Is there any chance that I could borrow this amazing ticket to photograph please? I've borrowed hundreds of the past four years and they've all been returned safely via recorded post with no problems. My email is - I really hope well can get this sorted as it's a beautiful piece of a cool jigsaw from my mis-spent youth! THANK YOU!
