Part of the
British Comedy Collection
Richie and Eddie are two jobless perverts who share a flat. Neither have much, if any, experience with women... unless you count magazines and videos of a dubious nature. Their main hobby outside of looking at such material is attempting to redesign each other with a variety of household objects... a pan to the face, an axe to the head, a hammer to the nuts... it's all good in the land of Bottom.
