Leave the Plastic On



A brand-new digital series of satirical comedy sketches to binge!

Join the world of Leave the Plastic On, where you’ll meet some recognisable characters in some tricky situations.

In the first six sketches, two of our characters MC Maacho and Prema Patel (pronounced Petal) are on a mission to succeed. But their parents could be the roadblock to their path to success... what lengths will they go to get on?

MC Maacho is desperate to represent his culture through music (and boost his Instagram followers) and Prema is in complete denial of her heritage on the cusp of her burgeoning political career.

There’s enough to contend with a ‘new normal’ post-lockdown, but with their futures so close, will MC Maacho and Prema Patel be able to remove the ‘plastic’ of their cultural norm?

These bitesize comedy sketches are written by Pravesh Kumar (Mushy: Lyrically Speaking, Laila The Musical, The Deranged Marriage) and Yasmeen Khan (EastEnders), directed by Ameet Chana (Mushy: Lyrically Speaking) and starring Varun Raj (Mushy: Lyrically Speaking), Nimisha Odedra (Sketchtopia), Nitin Ganatra (EastEnders), Rina Fatania (Mummyji Presents) and Manpreet Bambra (Wizards vs Aliens).
