"Bottom" is about the lives of Richie Richard and Eddie Hitler; a couple of rude, dirty, disgusting, nasty, anti-social losers. They are best buddies who do nothing but hang round their unhygienic flat insulting and hitting each other.

BSG Review:

"Bottom", from the makers of "The Young Ones", is one of naughtiest British sitcoms ever made and packed to the rafters with violent slapstick. The jokes are extremely rude and crude but are also hilarious if you're not too easily offended. Edmondson's and Mayall's energy and enthusiasm combined with the obvious ad-libbing can't help but cause a smile. The spin-off stage shows are even bigger!

Trivia: Ade Edmondson and Rik Mayall originally planned to call the series 'Your Bottom' - so that viewers would be heard to say such things as, "I saw Your Bottom on television last night".
