More brilliant comedy from Rik & co.
11 October 1998 | by See all my reviews

Stumbled onto this on Bravo a few years back...if you've only seen Rik in the Young Ones or Drop Dead Fred, you'll be amazed at his range and talent in this and the other episodes in the "Rik Mayall Presents" series. See also "Dirty Old Town", "Clair De Lune", and "The Big One".
