Absurd and full of cheap laughs (in a good way)
10 March 2017 | by undeaddannySee all my reviews

Live shows based on sitcoms often tend to do nothing more than pick the best lines of dialogue from popular episodes and attempt to squeeze them all into one strange and messy plot. The lives shows of Bottom on the other hand, despite the jokes all being fairly similar in the first place, never take anything directly from the series without it being changed enough to effectively be a new gag. Its still just Eddie thinking Richie is 'queering him up', the pair kicking each other in the balls constantly and pervy remarks being made about Sue Carpenter but Rik and Ade never failed to come up with a new innuendo or a new weapon for testicular assault.

As with the first Bottom Live the plot is minimal and the only major difference is the inclusion of two sets (the flat and the prison cell). As any fan of the series knows however, Bottom, whether it be in the form of a TV show, live performance or even a feature film, shines the most when it is kept simple. Plot heavy comedy can be great but there's nothing wrong with two of the funniest comic actors of the 80s and 90s just doing what they do best - a relentless string of nob jokes, over the top violence and improvised forth wall breaks.

I encourage anyone who enjoyed Bottom when it was new to invest in a box set of DVDs including those of the live shows. Its timeless humour that you'll have ready to brighten your day for decades to come
