Synopsis:
Meet Steven Toast (Matt Berry, The IT Crowd, House of Fools) - actor, ladies' man and aficionado of some of Soho's finest drinking clubs. With the often misguided assistance of his old-school 'retro' agent Jane Plough (Doon Mackichan, Smack the Pony, Plebs) and peculiar flatmate Ed Howzer-Black (Robert Bathurst, Cold Feet, Downton Abbey), Toast faces a multitude of obstacles in his quest for fame and recognition. These include murderous director Acker Herron, arch-nemesis Ray 'Bloody' Purchase, submarines, Bruce Forsyth lookalikes, obsessive hoarders, Freemasonry, and the real Michael Ball.

Afternoon Tea S1, Ep2 27 Oct. 2013

In the event neither of his alternative new careers ...
