: I'd pay damn good money to see an episode of Bottom written by Kevin!
I'd be fascinated to see if he could pull it off (fnaar!), especially as he's up against the acknowledged masters of dick and fart jokes. I would hesitate to state that he could, if only because they write their own material and have that amazing chemistry.
It's a shame that Kevin would have far too many restrictions on American network telly to really make a project like that work over there (I don't know how the cable channels work, or how widespread they are). I gather that the American version of Men Behaving Badly was taken off because of shite ratings, and the actors were furious about how toned-down it was. I can't remember any specific examples, but the one I saw was pathetic in its tameness.
Maybe JASBSB will have its own fair share of filth, but Mayall and Edmondson will always rule.
