Summary

Enjoy this fantastic edition of Beauty and The Beast by the brilliant comedian, writer and actor Rik Mayall. Adapted by the renowned producer Mike Bennett, this delightful retelling of a classic tale will captivate from start to finish.

The late, great Richard "Rik" Mayall was a pioneer of alternative comedy in the '80s, who formed a famous comedy partnership with Ade Edmondson, and featured in numerous cult classic sitcoms, including The Young Ones, Bottom, Blackadder, and Guest House Paradiso, among others. In 2014, at the age of 56, a massive blow was dealt to the world of comedy when Rik passed away.

Dreadful!

Don't wasted your money. Performance/narrator ruined it. Storyline OK different to the Disney one I and my boys knew. Shame as I normally like Rik Males stuff.
