Director Statement

The script was written on the many drives back from stand-up gigs with my writing partner Nick Horseman when we were performing as a stand-up comedy double-act. My sister Izzy Fonseca came on board to produce and we set out to make a feature film for less than £10,000. Our cast features a host of up-and-coming talent from the British comedy and sketch circuit.
I hope you enjoy it.
