Adrian "Ade" Edmondson, also known by the stage name "Eddie Monsoon", was born on January 24th 1957. One of the brightest stars of the Alternative Comedy circuit in The '80s, Edmondson has accumulated a surprisingly large number of credits as a writer, actor, director, comedian and television presenter.
Edmondson was, for a significant portion of his career, part of various acts with his best firend Rik Mayall.
Edmondson married fellow Alt-comedy star Jennifer Saunders since 1985, and the couple has three children.

Tropes associated with his career:
- Large Ham: He's known for playing loud, violent characters most codified in his role as Vyvyan.
- Playing Against Type: Edmondson, who has spent most of his career playing vile, unsympathetic slapstick victims, appeared in The Last Jedi as General Hux's very strait-laced adjutant.
