BOTTOM'S in huge demand in Ipswich.

People's want and desire to see Rik Mayall and Ade Edmondson's fifth live Bottom has now hit such high levels that they have agreed to bring it back for a third time this year.

The new outing of their hugely popular comedy show about hapless misfits Eddie Hitler and Richard Richard has already been booked in for two dates at Ipswich Regent, on November 9 and December 8.

But with the first of these sold out and only a few tickets left for the second, their Bottom will now also be flashed on stage on December 9 – and tickets for this additional date are now on sale.

It seems the popularity of Richie and Eddie has not waned since they first burst onto the scene in the first television series of Bottom in 1991.

It introduced us to the two losers in life who thrive on a diet of vitriol mutually inflicted wounds and pornographic magazines.
