Others called it “the new rock ‘n’ roll”. Whatever it was, it spawned “The Young Ones”. Comedy changed on the 9th November 1982 when Rick, Vyvyan, Neil and Mike infiltrated the safe world of the television sitcom. They farted, swore, hit each other and shouted a lot and comedy hasn’t been the same since. They weren’t nice; they were NASTY! This is the story of the conception and birth of “The Young Ones”, their ancestors, their playmates and, eventually, their offspring.
