Programme Outline:
A sort of super-intelligent version of one of Rik Mayall's other characters,Richard Richard(Bottom),Quadruple Professor Adonis Cnut(Mayall),the cleverest man in Britain(possibly the world),is irresistable to women,consulted by governments and paid large amounts of money for his appearances on TV and radio shows.But he is bored.He needs new and exciting challenges to service his mighty mind.His first is to fill a vacant seat at the Council for International Progress - a shadowy,underground organisation that controls and manipulates everything that goes on in the world.The second is to get Dr Hannah Awkward(Emili Bruni),the only woman capable of resisting him,into bed.
Through all of Adonis' challenges,he is accompanied by his faithful servant,Albumen(Michael Maloney),who is hopelessly devoted to A Cnut,and lives for him and him alone.
