"Carnival" is the sixth and final episode of the third series. It is also the final ever episode of the televised run of the show before the adventures of Richie and Eddie were continued in the live shows. It was first broadcast on 10 February 1995. Richie and Eddie steal a BBC camcorder during the annual Hammersmith Riots and try to make their own You've Been Framed-styled mishaps show.
It's carnival day and Richie and Eddie are watching the annual Hammersmith Riots unfold from their lounge window. Eddie has already looted the off-licence and has stored 136 cases of Malibu in the lounge. After watching "Fatty" Amal and Father O'Mally partake in a bit of anarchy, they decide to head out and do a bit more looting. They return later on with various items of value, but Eddie is mostly fixated on the small plastic duck he stole from Curry's.
Richie reveals he has stolen a BBC camcorder, believing he was entitled to take it anyway because he allegedly pays his TV licence. He decides he can make a fortune by making his own current events talk show much in the style of Robert Kilroy-Silk, however falls down the stairs during the recording. Eddie then becomes inspired to make his own Beadle-styled clip show, but after getting a dart thrown in his eye and also at his forehead and having his apron set on fire with frying pan fat and not to mention falling violently falling out of the kitchen window, is horrified to hear that they forgot to put the tape in the camera.
All is not lost however, when they find a video in the camera depicting Prime Minister John Major getting it on with his mistress. They decide to blackmail the government, but only succeed in attracting the SAS, who burst into the flat and gun them down.
- Amal the kebab shop owner is mentioned for the first time since "Gas."
- Richie and Eddie's telephone number "444-4444" is spoken in dialogue, having first been established in Bottom Live.
