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.
Richie (Rik Mayall) is a former actor who has only one ambition - to be famous. He believes that everyone knows who he is and often has a paranoid feeling that people are out to get him. He lives with his minder Edward (Ade Edmondson), a drunk. His agent Ralph Filthy (Nigel Planner) is not very good at his job and apart from being an agent, he is involved in some rather shady businesses. This series follows Richie's pathetic attempts to reach stardom. He stops at nothing to reach his goal; he even contemplates killing his own father. Fourth-wall breaking happens very often. Hugh Laurie and Stephen Fry appear in one episode, as well as young Chris Barrie.Written by
The character of Ralph Filthy was allegedly based on a real Soho agent. 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 ping, mash it up with a bit of milk and butter, and ram it up your backside!

In the winter of 87' I first got acquainted with this wonderful group of comedians. I later watched the Young Ones and Bottom, but Filthy, Rich and Catflap remains my favorite by far.It is much more clever and funny, better written. This is my favorite comedy of all time. Difficult to believe it is so underestimated.The reason may be the harsh criticism on various BBC and show business stars. Moreover, they also criticized the BBC establishment. That was too much for some of those dinosaurs during that Thatcher era. I don't know if more episodes were necessary, since the six produced are masterpieces. I also understand that Rick Mayall was not pleased with the final result, and wanted more say in the show; to that I can only say- Rick you were marvelous, but the show was great too.
