Ade drops his Bot­tom

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

TELLY fun­ny­men Ade Ed­mond­son and Rik May­all have ditched plans to re­vive their sit-com Bot­tom.

The one-time Young Ones hoped to re­turn to the roles of Eddie Hitler and Richie Richard af­ter a break of 17 years.

The re­union was set to be a six-episode se­ries based on their 1997 live stage show Hooli­gan’s Is­land, but the TV come­back has now been scrapped.

Ade ( above) 55, re­vealed: “There isn’t a Bot­tom Se­ries Four. There isn’t any­thing.

“Rik and I started work­ing on some­thing and we re­alised why we stopped work­ing to­gether. It wasn’t work­ing.”

He added: “I’m aware peo­ple think com­edy’s easy to do and write, and it rel­a­tively is, to be hon­est. But once you get to a cer­tain age you want to do things you re­ally en­joy, not just things you can do.”
