Rising Damp



“I’ll tell you what’s happened to the permissive society – It’s living in my house !”

“Rising Damp” was one of only a handful of British TV sitcoms that successfully transferred to the big screen; largely due in this case to the excellent performances (and comedic chemistry) of the leading actors (Leonard Rossiter, Don Warrington and Frances De La Tour) but also the superb writing by one of the industries best comedy writers; Eric Chappell. This original 1980 British UK quad film poster features some impressive feelgood Tom Beauvais artwork; spot on comedic characterisations of  ‘Rigsby’ (Leonard Rossiter), ‘Miss Jones’ (Frances De La Tour) & ‘Philip’ (Don Warrington). Originally folded (as issued) this excellent unrestored example displays and presents to superb effect… A huge and loving fanbase exists for this classic British sitcom and this original film poster certainly brings back plenty of happy memories…British TV comedy nostalgia at it’s finest…cool, funny and colourful…A personal favourite of my youth that still makes me chuckle today.
