Mr Jolly Lives Next Door is one of the infamous Comic Strip Presents stable of comedy shows. Revolving around the antics of the two disgusting alcoholic owners of the Dreamytime escort agency (played by Rik Mayall and Adrian Edmonson although you never find out their real characters names) who when given £3000 by local gangster and car-lover, Mr Lovebucket , accidentally spend it on 1568 large gins instead of delivering it to their neighbour Mr Jolly (played by Peter Cook) the owner of the Mr Jollys Fluffy Toy Company (an office that is really a front for his hitman business) so he can 'take out' Nicholas Parsons. This is an absolutely ridiculous but brilliant film and the the closest thing to a link between Ade and Riks work as The Dangerous Brothers and Bottom

Memorable quotes include:

(Ade)"Heime Henderson has just had a consignment of exploding tonic water delivered ....what a wacky off-licence that must be...."

(Ade and Rik chanting when someone knocks on the door)"Escorts, Bestcorts, come in if you're saucy"

(Ade)"I can smell alcohol!!"
(Mortician)"That's just embalming fluid"
(Ade)"Barmy fluid! ....that sounds brilliant!!

(Rik)"Who Dares Gins!!"

(Nicholas Parsons) {when asking about Riks tie-breaker answer}"So what was you winning entry"
(Rik)"Never, Ever, Bloody Anything, Ever!"
