“a terrifically funny and smart quarterlife-crisis comedy with great dialogue riffs and a nice line in insouciant gloom.”
★★★★ The Guardian
Some nicknames are better than others
Original, laugh-out-loud and heart-breakingly honest, Chubby Funny is the critically-acclaimed debut feature from writer-director Harry Michell.
It tells the story of aspiring actor Oscar (Michell), who moves to London with his best friend and fellow thespian, Charlie (Augustus Prew, Prison Break: Resurrection, High-Rise).
Giving himself a year to make it in the industry, Oscar is typecast as the ‘chubby funny’ best friend by his brutally frank agent Susan (Alice Lowe, Prevenge, Sightseers) and ends up waylaid by the same old problems – friendships, flings, and the question of finding ultimate fulfilment.
Chubby Funny also stars Isabella Laughland (Harry Potter), Asim Chaudhry (People Just Do Nothing), and Olivia Ross (Personal Shopper).
