About The Comic Strip Presents… Red Top


Produced by Great Western Features for Gold,  The Comic Strip Presents… The Red Top marks a welcome return of the nation’s favourite anarchic comedy collective. No one is safe from the irreverent wit of legendary British comedy filmmaker Peter Richardson in this surreal and hilarious script.

The film brings together a roll call of universally treasured British comedy greats, alongside exciting new comic talent. MAXINE PEAKE will play the title role alongside NIGEL PLANER as Rupert Murdoch and RUSSELL TOVEY as Andy Coulson.  JOHNNY VEGAS, ALEXEI SAYLE, HARRY ENFIELD, JAMES BUCKLEY and JOHN SESSIONS will also star in the film alongside ELEANOR MATSUURA as Wendi Deng.

STEPHEN MANGAN will reprise his role as Tony Blair, and creator PETER RICHARDSON will also make an exciting appearance.
