Tickets for new sitcom The Scum Also Rises

Anyone interested? London, Monday and Thursday next week, with Adam Buxton, Kevin Bishop, Iain Lee and Daisy Haggard. Giving ad execs a kicking, because they deserve it, apparently.


Bill Hicks called them Satan’s Little Helpers. They’re the flaky, shaky, fakey “creatives” who work in the advertising industry. Underworked and overpaid, they’re the people who spend all day trying to spend all day trying to persuade you to buy stuff you don’t want with money you don’t have. They’re scum!

But they’re likeable scum. There’s Billy, who’s smart and funny and STILL works in advertising; uncontrollable urge-bag Keaton who is possibly evil but undeniably crazed; ambitious, neurotic, spoiled Emma; and hopeless, witless, feckless Greg. Their boss, Satan herself, is addled, raddled agency boss Mrs Broom, who LOVES to hire and fire, sometimes doing both to the same people in the same meeting.

Bright, sharp, original and funny… It reaches the parts other comedies cannot reach. Starring Kevin Bishop (Star Stories, The Kevin Bishop Show), Adam Buxton (Adam and Joe), Iain Lee (The 11 O’Clock Show) & Daisy Haggard (Man Stroke Woman), the show will taping for ONE NIGHT ONLY at BBC TV Centre on Thursday 12th June. However, on Monday 9th June, the whole cast will be performing the show at The Kings Head, Islington. This will be the first full performance of the show and the audience feedback will be used to tweak the show before the studio recording on Thursday 12th June at BBC TV Centre..
