Mr Jolly Lives Next Door

TV's Comic Strip in a niagara of blood, booze, saliva and sick, this has Edmondson and Mayall as a pair of bored escorts who, while taking no care of Nicholas Parsons, become involved with a hit-gang and an axe-man (Cook). The abuse is so gratuitous, the pace so riotous, that a kind of obscene serenity hovers over the mayhem. It's funny. Comic Strippers will adore it, and after a six-pack, so will anybody else.
