Trivia

Years after its final release, Edmondson and Mayall began writing a Spin-Off series entitled Hooligan's Island, after the third stage show. The series was written but Edmondson opted out of it last minute to 'pursue other interests'. See more »

Goofs

In the episode 'Apocalypse', Eddie (disguised as the grim reaper) states that he doesn't know how to play chess, and Richie says that he will teach him. However, in the later episode 'Culture', it is the other way around - Eddie knows how to play chess, and Richie does not. See more »

Quotes

[Drunken man enters the bar, singing, he trips, and falls down]
Richie: That's Tight-mouthed Larry, the bookmaker!
[Larry is heard vomiting on the floor]
Eddie: He's not very tight-mouthed today, is he?

Hilarious comedy from one of the best double acts around
16 February 2004 | by See all my reviews

Bottom is one of the funniest comedies created. Every time I watch it I can't help but laugh hysterically at the antics of Rik Mayall and Ade Edmondson who are the best double act British comedy has ever produced. Violent, crude loud and hilarious. A must see
