Richard Richard & Edward Elizabeth Hitler, two men with no hope of fitting in with society. Two men who will forever fall foul of lifes little jokes, mainly because they are too stupid to avoid them! Adrian Edmondson and Rik Mayall take an anarchic look into the lives of these two friends who are forever threatening, and commiting, violence on each other. This series could be said to be a follow up, of a kind, to The Young Ones. Same stars and same attitude but the young ones are now heading into middle age. A succesful series that spawned five live tours [and five videos of these shows] and a big screen film, Guest House Paradiso. Although the film was not released as such it is advertised as a Bottom film on the video release.

Hilarious and very gritty glimpse into the lives of two complete idiots trying to make there way through a series of ridiculous situations. RIP Rik.

Rude, Crude and downright funny. Rik Mayall as always on excellent comedic form, again teaming up with long time sidekick Ade Edmondson (Vyvyan from the brilliant Young Ones), classic british slap-stick humor. The live shows are also worth hunting down to view and the movie Guest House Paradiso, which isn't as good as the TV series. but they gave it a good shot. Highly enjoyable chaotic, nihilistic humour and violent comedy slapstick fun. Must see.
