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.
From the Director
Widely acknowledged as the founding fathers of alternative comedy, The Comic Strip Presents launched the careers of some of our best-loved comedians including Dawn French, Jennifer Saunders, Rik Mayall, Alexei Sayle, Ade Edmondson, Peter Richardson, Keith Allen, Robbie Coltrane and Nigel Planer.

Approached by the artists, Channel 4 was convinced to take a chance and commission a TV series. Launched the same day as the Channel itself in November 1982, this political and social satire became an instant hit, changing the face of UK comedy forever.

Over 20 years after the first transmission, Channel 4 Video is, for the first time, bringing together all 39 episodes of the ground-breaking comedy in a 9disc collectors box set. Classics include: Five Go Mad in Dorset the parody of the Famous Five stories washed down with lashings of ginger beer, Golden Rose of Montreux winning Strike! an over the top Hollywood pastiche about the 1984 miners strike, and Bad News a send up of a touring rock band the original Spinal Tap!

The 9th disc is loaded with an extensive array of extras for fans of this cult series with a running time of over two hours. Included is a brand new exclusive retrospective of the Comic Strip presents.comprising of interviews with Dawn French, Adrian Edmondson, Peter Richardson, Alexei Sayle, Nigel Planer, Pete Richens, Lenny Henry, Leslie Philips, Julie T Wallace, Gary Beadle and Phil Cornwell about their Comic Strip experiences. Julien Temples 1981 tongue in cheek look at what went on behind the scenes of the original stage show The Comic Strip, and cast interviews from 1998 make up disc 9.

Now, at long last, this uniquely successful comedy great is coming to DVD courtesy of Channel 4 DVD in a must-own collectors box set!

One episode gives a glimpse of Jennifer Saunders tits (Supergrass) and a very good 5 Go Mad In Dorset, and equally good one about Gunslingers, wild west,but as for owning the whole thing, nah. I'll pass
