When Melbourne’s boss drug dealer is Australia’s favourite comedian, two cops take on the Comedy Festival by going undercover as comedians. But they’ll have to get funny pretty damn quick.
You’ve probably seen this scum bucket* on stage and laughed at their scum bucket jokes… even though they’re super great. But we’ll see who’s laughing when we reveal their scummy scum scum belly and the scum underneath, using some damn fine police work.
Chris Martin and Taylor Edwards take on their biggest mission to date – risking the crippling debt and humiliation of performing a Comedy Festival show in the biggest drug bust operation in Melbourne’s history.
They’ll answer the age old question: Is it better to die in a shootout with scum buckets, or die on stage?
*Actually a really really really really really nice and decent human being
The duo cause ruptures of laughter with their manic take on sketch comedy… this show will blow your mind.' scenestr.
