'Bottom' was a madcap, violent, very funny 1990s BBC sitcom, starring Rik Mayall as Richie, and Ade Edmondson as Eddie Hitler.
Richie is a frustrated virgin with a small pecker, and Hitler is a mad sadist who likes hitting Richie. Neither have much luck with the ladies. They're flatmates, so tend to get on each other's nerves ad nauseam. Richie is conceited and delusional, and tends to think any woman who doesn't fancy him must be a lesbian. Eddie is quite smart, but has drinking problems, which make him more anti-social than when sober. At least he has a couple of friends - Spudgun (Steve O'Donnell) and Dave Hedgehog (Christopher Ryan - reuniting with his 'Young Ones' pals). Richie has none.
Both Richie and Eddie have one notable quality - their indestructibility. Despite the very dangerous and violent scrapes they get into, nothing, it seems, can cause them mortal harm.
The Eddie Hitler character may have inspired Harry Hill's fashion sense.
