Filthy, Rich and Catflap

After the rebellious and revolutionary sitcom The Young Ones, writer Ben Elton reunited with Nigel Planer, Rik Mayall and Adrian Edmondson for this often overlooked gem from 1987 about a wannabe celebrity and his cohorts. Richie Rich is a talentless and obscure TV personality, but he's convinced that his useless agent, Ralph Filthy, and his alcoholic minder, Eddie Catflap, can both aid him in his quest for fame and glory. Filthy, Rich and Catflap only ran for one series but it wasn't long after that fans of anarchic comedy were placated by the magnificent sight of Rik and Ade's Bottom.
