Started by a troupe of now well-established comedy actors (most notably Adrian Edmondson, Dawn French, Rik Mayall, and Jennifer Saunders), "The Comic Strip" offered audiences an alternative to the 'safe' humour of its day. The show left no taboo unturned--with shocking and often offensive portrayals of violence, sex, bestiality, and explicit drug use (not to mention all the swearing and puerile fart-gags). But despite the controversy--or perhaps because of it--"The Comic Strip" drew a cult following for its anti-establishment views, which resonated well with younger generations

A series of self contained TV films starring performers from London's "Comic Strip" comedy club and their friends. Noted for a high sense of parody of previous films, literature, and generally everyone in sight.
