Elton the Snowman, the part which Mayall voices in the show, has been described as the comedian’s “last great character.”

Elton is the last remaining talking Snowman – a war-mongering, immortal, immoral tyrant. Ed Mullet (played by Duncan Pow) is an eager young ghostwriter tasked with interviewing Elton for a forthcoming collection of memoirs.

Elton invites Ed to The Last Hurrah, a notorious, near mythical, highly secret and highly disgusting gentlemen’s club. As the sherry flows, Elton becomes increasingly inept at hiding his long life of crime.

Written by Mayall, Craig Green and Dominic Vince, The Last Hurrah was recorded as a six-part series
