BBC Three‘ sitcom shaped by the acclaimed sketch combo Pappy’s, originally known as Pappy’s Fun Club, centers on three flat mates who refuse to grow up and can’t help getting into comic scrapes. Ben (played by Ben Clark) is cheerful, easily pleased and always as jolly as a sandboy. As an only child, his parents lavished care on him as a little boy and still humour him as a fully grown child. Day in, day out, Ben keeps to the beaten track. He spends most of his time in the bath, watching three films in the afternoon and playing FIFA. Matthew (played by Matthew Crosby) is the most sensible of the trio. He attended university and landed an internship at Carabine Promotions, a media umbrella company that umbrellas media things where his sister, Rachel, is office manager. Matthew is eager to please everyone and craves to meet a special someone. Tom (played by Tom Parry) skipped higher education and travelled round the world. Now, he makes his living as a postman.
Mr. Carabine (played by Jack Docherty) is a clever Dick. Owner, manager and leading creative director of Carabine Promotions, he uses to give his employees the shivers by reminding anyone who steps out of line exactly where they lie in the pecking order. However, in the inmost recesses of his heart hides a bigger kid than Ben, Matthew and Tom. Lucy (played by Katherine Ryan), the new acquisition at Carabine Promotions, gained over everybody with her quick wit and loveable smile. Super confident in her own abilities, she will step on or over any of her co-workers to get to the top.
These bubbly characters charm you right on the spot.
