A series of self contained TV films starring performers from London's "Comic Strip" comedy club and their friends. Noted for a high sense of parody of previous films, literature, and generally everyone in sight.

A main factor in the show only lasting one series was a falling out between Rik Mayall and Ben Elton over writing privileges. Mayall felt Elton was dominating the series and that he was shut out of the writing process. See more »
Richie, if you don't stop talking, I am going to cut off your head, put it in the microwave until it goes pink, mash it up with a bit of milk and butter, and ram it up your backside!

A brilliant satire on celebrity and the state of it
This series, which by the way is a brilliant satire on celebrity and the state of it, stars 1/3 of The Young Ones and was filmed in between that series and Bottom. This is not very (or at all) well known in the U.S. sadly. Although all Young Ones Fans would love it. Imagine BOTTOM and THE YOUNG ONES combined, shake em up a bit and FILTHY, RICH AND CATFLAP is what you'd get. The shows get better upon repeat viewings and the jokes don't beat you over the head (as on BOTTOM). Highly recommended for all fans of any comedy at all.
