To quote the cassette sleeve:
'The Comic Strip was the pioneering comedy collective which launched the 'alternative comedy' boom of the 80's - which became the mainstream of the 90's. This is a reissue of the classic 1981 live album that launched the entire phenomenon. It was the first ever recording by the full comic strip team - including: Alexei Sayle, Rik Mayall, Ade Edmondson, French & Saunders, Nigel Planer, Peter Richardson and Arnold Brown. It includes the debut of many classic characters including "Neil", "Rik" and "Vyvian" characters as seen in "The Young Ones." These historic recordings were made at the Comic Strip's own London club in 1981 - at the height of the emsemble's first success - and captures the material that directly led to their being signed up for their break through TV shows "The Young Ones" and "The Comic Strip Presents..." Other TV series that grew out of this group include "The New Statesman," "Girls On Top," "French & Saunders," "Alexei Sayle's Stuff" and "Absolutely Fabulous" among many.'
