    They were in the comic strip films too.
    Comic strip was the whole lot, Rik Mayall, Adrian Edmonson,Dawn French,Jenifer Saunders,Nigel Planer,Robbie Coltrane,Alexei Sayle etc. Even Miranda Richardson ,Peter Cook and Nicholas Parsons are in some of them. They-ve been going for over 20 years.
    The best ive seen is "Mr Jolly Lives Next Door". Mr Jolly is a hitman and richie and eddie are personal escorts. They have offices next to each other and its a case of the wrong message to the wrong person. "take out nicholas parsons", its without a doubt on par with The Young Ones and Bottom. Dare I say better in parts.
    The fights in bottom and the one liners in The Young Ones are hard to beat. I watched The Young Ones the other day for the first time in years and years and Vivian hitting himself in the head with a cricket bat cos he's board had me in stitches. I went to watch Bottom Live 2 on my 16th birthday, its the only one ive seen and I think they still do them? Id not heard of "Bottom 25 Years of Mindless Violence" though. Ill look out for that.

    Also, Alan B'stard in the New Statesman. Only richie in that one but it is still quite good.

    They have done tons of stuff, just not always together.

    You've gotta watch Mr Jolly Lives Door though if your into Richie and Eddie. That one slots in between "Filthy, Rich and Catflap" and "The Dangerous Brothers"
    It gets a stompin' 9.6 on IMDB. I think thats the highest rating ive seen on IMDB.
    "The Comic Strip Presents..." Mr. Jolly Lives Next Door (1988)
