The Yob is the 21st episode of the British television comedy series The Comic Strip Presents..., written by Keith Allen and Daniel Peacock, with Allen also in the title role, and was directed by Ian Emes. It was first screened on Channel 4 on 12 March 1988 and also stars Adrian Edmondson and Peter Richardson.
In the story, pretentious music video director Patrick Church (Keith Allen) is at UB40 concert, where he inadvertently steps into a matter-transportation pod, believing it to be a portable toilet. His brain patterns and those of a football hooligan are transposed and he turns into an ape-like Arsenal supporter to comic effect.
