A sitcom about the flaky, shaky, fakey "creatives" who work in the advertising industry. Underworked and overpaid, they're the people who spend all day trying to persuade you to buy things you don't want with money you don't have. They're scum.

There's Billy, who's smart and funny and STILL works in advertising; uncontrollable urge-bag Keaton; neurotic, spoiled Emma; boss Clive, the most Australian man on the planet; and hopeless, witless, feckless Greg – who wants to be as ambitious and amoral as his friends, but can’t seem to manage even that.

Come and see the show that reaches the parts other comedies cannot reach…. Because you’re worth it.

Starring Adam Buxton (Adam and Joe), Iain Lee (The 11 O'Clock Show) & Daisy Haggard (Man Stroke Woman), on Monday 18th, Tuesday 19th & Wednesday 20th May, the whole cast of The Scum Also Rises will be performing a read-through of the show at Courtyard Theatre, Bowling Green Walk, off Pitfield Street N1 6EU. This will be the first full performance of the show and the audience feedback will be used to tweak the show before the studio recordings in June.

You are welcome to attend the preview show and then also come to the studio recording; this is a unusual opportunity to see how a show is developed into the final product!

If you would like to join us for the read-through at The Courtyard Theatre, near Old Street Street tube, London, then apply now!
