Watching the violence of Bottom for the first time



Nothing can prepare you for Bottom

Bottom is truly a classic of 90s British comedy. Airing for the first time in 1991, the comedy centred on flatmates Richard Richard and Edward Elizabeth Hitler, played by Rik Mayall and Andy Edmondson respectively.

In the flat they share, the pair embark on a series of crude and violent adventures, ones which inevitably end with one or both of them ending up badly hurt.

To those who grew up watching it, this mix of violence and comedy is normal, but what about those who’ve never seen it before? We got our resident British comedy newbie, Aurore, to test it out.
