Like a Poundland version of Richard Gere in Pretty Woman, Dan Zeff, a multiple Bafta-winning TV writer and director, plucked Dylan Edwards from a life of destitute obscurity and gave him his big break – a starring role in the hit BBC comedy, Pramface.
Under his careful tutelage, Dan alchemised Dylan from a lump of coal into a shiny diamond, and soon Dylan’s career was flourishing, both as an actor in film and TV (Game of Thrones, Wasted, High-Rise) and as a writer and director – most recently making online series ‘Difficult Second Coming’ which was selected for the 2016 Venice Film Festival.
The pair began to collaborate on numerous scripts for television at a furious pace, fuelled by a heady mix of maverick creativity and sexual tension.
Then Dan met Sami Abusamra, his mother from another brother.
Sami has been writing, editing, animating and directing comedy films since realising that he’s too sarcastic for a real job. His comedy shorts have picked up awards across Europe and the US, and commercials include films for Virgin Trains, Nissan and Bosch.
In a landmark shift as cinematically groundbreaking as the arrival of sound, colour, or supersize Popcorn, Sami joined the duo, completing a team of comedy creatives whose size, mass, and skill-set create a perfectly balanced trio.
The three now play, sing and work together from a regularly serviced toilet cubical at Clacket Lane services.
