rikRik Mayall may not be impressed with his honorary doctorate awarded him by the University of Exeter in 2008. “It’s a difficult university to get into,” he jokes. “You need a good map.”

As for his elevated academic status, the Young Ones writer and star of the sitcom Bottom adds: “I’m a doctor of literature for writing a lot of knob jokes.”
