I hear he is joining Eastenders. Will be interesting to see how his 5'9.25 holds up to the other male cast members.

Big Rob he barely looks 175cm here let alone 177cm. In person is he really similar height to a legit 177cmer like Russell Tovey?
Editor Rob
At his age he might have lost a 1/4 inch or so, I think today you could argue in 5ft 9.25 at most

Ade is a comedian; Robert is a horror actor, but he has made me laugh at times! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ“Ί

@ Sandy Cowell - This photograph is very funny and reminds me of the one on Robert Englund's page!
Sandy Cowell said on 20/Feb/19
Yes, Nik, with him staring out at us in that funny picture with Rob, it can be a bit difficult NOT to visit his page at least twice in a day! 😲😝

@ Sandy Cowell - This is great to hear! I know we have both checked him out plenty of times!
Sandy Cowell said on 17/Feb/19
Ooh nice! Ade is No. 19 in the top 50 most checked-out celebs! Isn't that EXCELLENT? πŸ˜ŠπŸ‘
Nik said on 17/Feb/19
@ Sandy Cowell - Well toilets will vary in terms of colour and design so I am sure you would love to take up your toilet collecting again, it would be interesting to find out what different materials a toy (toi!) toilet could be made out of! I think collecting them in secret would be a good idea! Hey, at least you wouldn't ever have to call a plumber out to see to your toy (toi!) toilets (toylets!)! πŸš½πŸ˜‚!
Sandy Cowell said on 14/Feb/19
PS Nik - If I ever take up toilet collecting again, I have come to the conclusion that I will have to do it in secret.

Sandy Cowell said on 14/Feb/19
@ Nik - Oh, but none of them were detailed, merely toys! Some were even keyrings, but they all had seats on them and lids which you could manipulate just like real toilets.

The toilet abuse started when I noticed that 'someone' had been placing dolls on them with their draws down. As if that wasn't atrocious enough, I lifted one of the dolls to find plasticine business inside one of them with PLJ (pure lemon juice) amongst what the doll had supposed to have used the toilet for! The mixture curdled and completely ruined my favourite pink toilet. I was heartbroken, and gave up toilet collecting there and then.

Nik said on 13/Feb/19
@ Sandy Cowell - It must be fun collecting toy lavatories, particularly if the manufacturer has an eye for detail!

No, it's not very nice when someone else lives on the toilet and it ain't cracking (crackin'!) when there isn't any toilet paper left when you need to go! I don't know which of these scenarios is the worst, but when you are faced with both of them ... well!

If there isn't any toilet paper left you can always think of alternatives, newspapers, a sock!

Maybe Ade looks taller on screen, the picture above may not do him any justice!
Andrea said on 13/Feb/19
He pretty much looks right around an inch taller here, so somewhere around 176 range certainly seems quite believable, based on the pic.
Sandy Cowell said on 13/Feb/19
@ Nik - 🚽 It isn't very pleasurable when you go to the toilet and someone's beaten you to it!

Phwew! Especially if that someone has polished off all the toilet paper as well! 🚽 πŸ…±οΈπŸ…ΎοΈLLπŸ…ΎοΈX to that!
Sandy Cowell said on 12/Feb/19
@ Nik - I know someone who collected toy lavatories for a while. It was me! They were all neatly on display until a certain nameless person decided to put obscenities in them, and they were discoloured for life. 😭


If you still aren't convinced that Ade is 5ft9.5, then I suggest you take a thoroughly good look at his 'Bottom'.
Nik said on 11/Feb/19
@ Sandy Cowell - This quotation certainly has grabbed my attention Sandy, there is nothing mundane and functional about ze toilet! It is an institution and a pleasurable part of our lives, both on and off the 'lav!

I am not convinced that Adrian is over 5'9.25"!
Sandy Cowell said on 9/Feb/19
Ade says, as German Baron von Richthoven, "I'd like to know why you English find ze toilet so amusing? To us, the toilet is a mundane and functional item. To you, it is the basis of an entire culture!"

Quotation from 'Blackadder Goes Forth'. Has that grabbed your attention at all, Nik? My German Mum agreed, but with me in the house, she soon changed her tune!
Nik said on 6/Feb/19
@ Sandy Cowell - My Dad used to like "Blackadder" and I think "Bottom" too, I could always give them a go!

It's interesting that Adrian doesn't appear to have a higher shoulder level than Rob in the above picture!
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 6/Feb/19
He only has about an inch on Rob. 5'9.25" max
Peter 180cm said on 5/Feb/19
Looks 176cm
Bobby 5'10 (178cm) said on 5/Feb/19
You can tell he's taller even while slouching, but I'm not sure on him measuring 5'9.5.
Sandy Cowell said on 5/Feb/19
Edward Hitler in 'Bottom'!
Sandy Cowell said on 5/Feb/19
@ Nik - I can! You should watch 'Blackadder' and 'Bottom'!
Nik said on 5/Feb/19
I struggle to see him being as tall as 5'9.5"!
Greg99 said on 4/Feb/19
I'm not seeing an inch and a half between the guys, but I'll trust Rob's judgement on this - 5'9 1/2" it is...(would have thought 5'9" tops)
Sandy Cowell said on 4/Feb/19
This guy is so FUNNY! πŸ€£πŸ’¨

Colberto said on 3/Feb/19
Looks an inch and a quarter on rob a the very least
5'9 Β½" is about right
5ft7SithLord said on 3/Feb/19
Domhnall Gleeson looked 6ft3 in The Last Jedi. It's possible he was wearing lifts because Adrian looked really short beside him.
World Citizen said on 3/Feb/19
Looks 175 176 cm at best.
184guy2 said on 2/Feb/19
Looking at most 5'9

Rob , did he had less footwear or posture ?
Sandy Cowell said on 2/Feb/19
Bloody hell! I haven't seen this picture before! I love this guy! He should be added to the the 'Blackadder' page!

What a star! I had the nickname of 'Bottom' at one time, and I felt well and truly flattered! My fondness for the programme was renowned!
Editor Rob
Adrian in person was somewhere around 176 range. I'd call his range between 5ft 9-9.5. At age 60 maybe a small fraction lost.

Not a guy who had done one of these events before (and generally doesn't like taking photos with fans), but to be fair to the guy, he participated with fans fully from what I saw and was doing all sorts of poses with people. One of the few who seemed to know that if you agree to an event like this, treat it professionally and give fans their money's worth.
SMART BERRY said on 2/Feb/19
I would say 5’9.25” at 176 cm
Scott five eleven said on 7/Sep/13
Seemed tall and around 6'0 in the young ones where he played vyvyan but remember he was in his late twenties then and was quite lean. He also wore boots as the character but still only seemed rik mayalls height (5'11). In Bottom he was shorter than Rik Mayall despite his character wearing heeled footwear so I'd say 5'10 in his prime and 5'9 now.
Scott said on 11/Jan/12
I'd say shorter - around 5'9. He wore boots in 'the young ones' and he was also slimmer which did make him look 5'11 - 6'0. Rik mayall (5'10 - 11") did look an inch taller in bottom despite ade's character 'Eddie' wearing boots. I'd say 5'10 in his younger days 5'9 now.
Daii said on 14/Aug/08
He does look quite tall in The Young Ones, maybe because he was skinnier in them days but he did look close to 6 foot. I would say from Bottom 5'10 because he is an inch shorter than 5'11 Mayall but he is wearing boots. I agree nowadays on maybe a weak 5'10 or 5'10, no more though
Rebecca said on 21/Jan/08
ive seen him a few times and i reckon hes about 5ft11. no more though. (and he was wearing converse which dont have a heel)
Steven said on 30/Jul/07
5ft10 right on the mark, he is an inch shorter than Mayall. Check it out in Bottom, they are the same height there but that's because of Edmondson's high-heeled boots.
DressyBessy said on 10/May/07
I'd say he was 5ft 11. In The Comic Strip Presents... he always look pretty tall, but he was fairly lean and everyone knows the skinnier you are, the taller you look.
Random Task said on 10/Feb/07
No more than five ten. Definitely not six feet. Remember, Ade Edmondson wears shoes with big heels (watch any episode of Bottom).
Tall_Guy03 said on 20/Jan/07
I'm sorry but there is no way in hell that this guy is 6ft. I'd say he is 5ft 9 MAX.
MissLiss said on 21/Oct/06
Hey,if ya guys click on this link, there's a vid with Adrian and Midge Ure, who is 5ft 6ish-Adrian TOWERS above him. I say Adrian is 5ft 11-perhaps 6ft, but not shorter.

Layton said on 14/Oct/06
He IS 6ft. It says there. It is a credible site. About 5 sites say he is 6ft.

[Padraig: Total crap, 6 feet my arse.]
Kimage said on 4/Oct/06
He looks about 5ft 11, perhaps even a little more. I think you'll find his agency lists him as 5ft 11 too...
Tinseltoes said on 18/Sep/06
It says he is 6 ft on the IMDB website. Ah, heck, he does look it. I'd say definetly 6ft"-if not, minimum of 5ft 11". He is a tall bloke.
Tommy-C said on 3/Sep/06
He's about 180 cm-5ft 11, maybe taller, but not shorter
Tall Guy said on 9/Aug/06
He look's slightly shorter than Rik in "The Young Ones" but sometimes also equally as tall or slightly taller sometimes. I'll guess 179-181 is kinda accurate.
DaVinci said on 19/Jun/06
Sounds about right, though I would say he'd probably be 5'11". I hardly think he's around 6'1". In his show Filthy Rich & Catflap and in an episode of Blackadder episode, Fry and Laurie (at 6'4.5 and 6'2.5, respectively) definitely towered over him.
wrath said on 24/Feb/06
i saw adrian edmondson whilst he was on Whats eastign Gilbert Grape....he isn't that tall-i'm taller than him and i'm 6ft.
tom said on 16/Feb/06
is that a joke? Adrian Edmondson-5ft 10!! Look at him next to Jude Law, who we all know is about 5ft 8-5ft 9 ish-he towers over him and Sienna Miller, and he looks about 6ft, 6ft 1 ish for sure.

if any of you have seen Fabulous Life of: Rule Britania-they show you all the A listers from Britain-and obviously Adrian was on there, and they described him at standing at 6ft, i guess he is.

Look at him next to Jennifer Saunders-it's funny as ****, she's a proper midget. Only joking-she's about 5ft 5, 5ft 6, so he has got to be about 6ft 1 i say-he's so much taller, but not freakishly. Go in IMDB, it lsits a short Bio and include his vital stats. It says he IS 6ft-even though the height shown is 6ft 1...

[Editor Rob: the 178 is directly from his own cv, but beside rik mayall they did appear much closer...maybe 179cm is more accurate currently. As tall as 6ft???]

Heights are barefeet estimates, derived from quotations, official websites, agency resumes, in person encounters with actors at conventions and pictures/films.
