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

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!

Extremely funny if you know a lot about 1980s British pop culture.
Like i said in the summary, if you know a lot about 1980s British pop culture, you will love this show.But if you don't, you will not get most of the jokes.They constantly reference British celebrities that no one outside of Britain has ever heard of and never will unless they research them just because of this show.That being said, this show is still much better than Bottom.The first episode is about killing milkmen and it set the bar very high.A bar that they would frequently duck under for the rest of the series, while still managing to be better than most shows.Of course, only having one series changes how people feel about a show.I'm sure if they ran this into the ground like they did with Bottom, it would've ended up being terrible.Give this a shot(at least the first episode), you just might like it.
