Filthy, Rich & Catflap - 25th Anniversary Edition

Hot on the heals of the success of the anarchic The Young Ones, Nigel Planer, Rik Mayall and Adrian Edmondson joined forces under the penmanship of Ben Elton for the suitably outrageous Filthy, Rich & Catflap. With their winning brand of politically incorrect, brutally slapstick humour, the team shocked and offended in equal measure.

Mayall stars as the thoroughly self-centred, z-list TV presenter Richie Rich, assisted by his loyal entourage of one Eddie Catflap (Edmondson) and represented by the dour agent and occasional pornographer Ralph Filthy (Planer). Their exploits include appearing on TV-am, engaging with a morally lax Australian press magnate, devising new game show formats, leaving a trail of dead milkmen in their wake and being arrested for shoplifting which all turn out to be the least of their problems.

With a stellar list of guest stars including Barbara Windsor, The Nolan Sisters, Anne Diamond and Midge Ure, the show celebrates the no-holds-barred talent of a comic writing and performance team at the top of their game.

Special features include cast filmographies and a picture gallery.
