Creator/RikMayall plays Richie Rich, a [[SmallNameBigEgo talentless, unheard-of]] LargeHam actor on a manic crusade for fame and glory. He is assisted(?) in this endeavour by his useless sponging agent Ralph Filthy (Nigel Planer), and his violent alcholic minder Edward Catflap (Adrian Edmondson).

* SpringtimeForHitler: In Episode Five, Richie lands a chance to read the papers on ''TV-am''. Filthy, wanting to do his own presentation, tries to make sure they're late by urging them to be on time (see YouHaveFailedMe below), and they actually arrive on time for once, if only by ten minutes, much to Filthy's chagrin.
--> '''Filthy:''' I lose all my faith in human nature, I really do!
