Bottom was a British sitcom (aka britcom) of the early 1990s (and later a series of stage shows) written by Rik Mayall and Adrian Edmondson. They were also the main stars, respectively playing Richard Richard (Richie) and Edward Elizabeth Hitler (Eddie), who share a flat in Hammersmith, West London. The programme ran for three seasons, and is noted for its derivation of comic effect from intentionally crude and highly violent slapstick.
