User Reviews

 
Still funny, even at a weaker "violtage."
29 November 2019 | by UltradethSee all my reviews

The fourth live show of Bottom hits all the marks of the previous endeavors, from the rude humor to on stage bloopers, prop malfunctions, strong language and the few times when the leads follow the script.

Richard and Eddie are still on a desert island, whether it's the same from Hooligan's Island is unknown, but this series is renowned for many things, continuity is not one of them.

The second act I feel was weaker, even with particularly funny blunders. (Vecks in Practice, anyone?) It is a little diluted in comparison with the older live shows but is not without its highlights.
