The Bottom Wiki
Welcome to the Bottom wiki, and may I say, what a smashing blouse you have on!

A wiki covering all things Bottom, a British TV show starring Rik Mayall and Adrian Edmondson. Bottom originally aired on BBC2 between 1991 and 1995, followed by five live UK tours, the most recent being in 2003. The show utilised toilet humour, violent slapstick and the art of the double entendre. Versions of the characters also appeared in the 1999 film Guest House Paradiso. So dive in to the depraved world of Richie and Eddie; two losers living a life of poverty, sexual frustration, flatulence and good old-fashioned British violence!

And if you fancy creating your own stories based on the adventures of Richie & Eddie, head on over to the Fan Fiction area and give us a portion! Social media user? No problem - head over to the Bottom Fan Page on Facebook, the largest online fan community!

Farewell Rik Mayall - You took our cherry... right off! May this Wikia now serve as a tribute to your energy, your soul and your unbreakable funny bone.
