User Reviews

Greatest physical pervy humour there ever was
27 April 1999 | by Kryten-11See all my reviews

Bottom. Comedy masterpiece. From the opening episode 'Smells', to the most recent live tour 'Hooligan's Island', Bottom has succeeded in making anyone who is into fart gags and frying pan bashed gasmen, laugh uncontrollably.

The two central characters, Richie and Eddie, are portrayed superbly by Rik Mayall and Adrian Edmondson, and timely appearances by old Young Ones favourtie Christopher Ryan and that guy who plays spudgun add to the quality of this excellent series.

Most viewers from countries other than the UK may struggle to identify with these violent, sexually obsessed icons, but us brits lap it up.

Watch them all NOW !!!!!!!!
