    The Finale...

    The Finale...

    It’s the morning after Landlord Martin’s club night at the local pub and he’s buzzing with how well it went. He's even treated himself to his favourite rent boy, Scott. Meanwhile it’s make or break time for Tom as his agent seems to be losing all interest in his comedy career…
    Tom ploughs on with his podcast regardless and is joined by controversial therapist Polly D’eath (Katie Norris of Norris and Parker) to discuss her work with rock stars and pop stars, many of whom she has slept with.
    Times are tight and Tom is down to his last £200...now is certainly not the time for any unforeseen demands for money...
