Adrian Charles Edmondson (born 24 January 1957) is an English comedian, actor, musician and television presenter. He was part of the alternative comedy boom in the early 1980s and had roles in the television series "The Young Ones" (1982–1984) and "Bottom" (1991–1995), which he wrote together with his collaborative partner Rik Mayall.

In 1991, he teamed with his comedy partner Rik Mayall once more, this time co-writing and co-starring in their own sitcom, "Bottom". Edmondson starred as "Edward Elizabeth Hitler" opposite Mayall's "Richard Richard". The series featured the slapstick, crude humour for which the pair had become famous but with more in-depth character analysis. Mayall and Edmonson have said that "Bottom" was aimed to be more than just a series of toilet gags, but a cruder cousin to plays like Waiting for Godot about the pointlessness of life.
