PremierLeague-News.Com - Edward Elizabeth Hitler and Richard Richard go way, way back
PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! Edward Elizabeth 'Eddie' Hitler and Richard 'Richie' Richard are two pathetic, misogynistic, slobby flatmates living in a filthy, damp flat at 11 Mafeking Parade in Hammersmith. They are Adrian Edmondson and Rik Mayall's comic creations, two university friends who masterminded the cult BBC2 sitcom Bottom. Adrian and Rik met at Manchester University whilst studying Drama in the late 1970s. Their friendship would blossom into one of the most important collaborations in the history of British comedy. The show, which aired between 1991-95, is famous for its chaotic, nihilistic humour and violent comedy slapstick. Bottom also spawned five stage-show tours between 1993 and 2003 and a feature film, Guest House Paradiso (1999).

Both stars went on to achieve more fame and success after the show. Rik Mayall starred in some of Britain’s favourite TV shows such as Blackadder, Jonathan Creek and Midsomer Murders. He played Lizzie Cronin’s imaginary friend in the cult classic film Drop Dead Fred in 1991. Mayall was cast alongside some of the UK’s finest actors in Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone, but his depiction of the Hogwarts poltergeist Peeves was cut from the final movie. He passed away suddenly in 2014 at 56 after a heart attack and is remembered for his wacky and high-energy performances.
