Bottom Live: The Big Number Two is a 1995 live stage show based on the UK TV series Bottom that was filmed at the Apollo Theatre Oxford.


Act one

After a strange, half-mentioned turn of events, Richie and Eddie are about to meet the Queen. Richie is very excited over it while Eddie keeps forgetting it, because he's permanently drunk (as mentioned in the Bottom TV episode "Burglary"). When the Queen is rallying through Mafeking Parade, Hammersmith, they think she'd enjoy them getting out their "todgers" and set off a massive fireworks display, a mixture of rockets and Semtex that leads to the unexpected explosion ending the first act with a cliffhanger.

Act two

Richie and Eddie are sentenced to 350 years in prison charged with:

  • Attempted asphyxiation of the entire population of West London
  • detonation of 400 lbs of Semtex under contravention of the Anti-Terrorist act
  • Attempted regicide
  • Arson
  • causing an affray
  • wiggling their "todgers" at the Queen

They are faced with a problem in prison: they are trying to escape Geoffrey Nasty the Psychopathic Penis-Remover's boss, Horace Big (who is built like a donkey AND has a really enormous knob) after he takes an unfortunate "liking" to Richie. They eventually escape just in time for the Queen to come round for tea. They don't realise that the Queen was actually coming (and also the police were after them for escaping), so they set up a tripwire wired up to a bomb at the door to stop the police from catching them. Unfortunately for them, it just so happened to be the door that the Queen was coming through, so they accidentally blow up Her Majesty as well as themselves.


In Act two, Rik mocks an audience member after he shouted "Have a wank". Once Rik finishes the mockery, Ade asks "Have you finished now? Just I'm beginning to understand why Stephen Fry fucked off." This was a reference to Fry walking out of the West End play Cell Mates, in which Rik was his co-star. The real reason for Fry's exit was his suffering from depression and cyclothymia.

During Act Two, Rik forgets one of his props, a watch, and openly admits that he cannot do his "great watch gag".

Later, during a fight scene Rik does in fact accidentally punch Ade in the testicles which causes them to partially break character for a few moments.

There is a moment in Act 2 where Richie yells "Waiter! Waiter!". This could be a reference to Rick from The Young Ones when he shouts the exact same thing in Boring, the third episode of the first series.

Out of all the live shows The Big Number Two Tour is the one with the most out-takes and ad-libs made on stage by both Rik and Ade.
