Grindah's asthma problem

Grindah has developed a mysterious illness which flares up whenever Essex is mentioned - and he's convinced it is asthma.

Featuring: Allan 'Seapa' Mustafa (Grindah), Hugo Chegwin (Beats), Steve Stamp (Steves) & Dan Sylvester (Decoy).


This week's dose of the brilliant and pathos-heavy mockumentary sees Hounslow's premier wheeler dealer, Chabuddy G - AKA Alan Brown Sugar - come unstuck when his latest scheme goes awry. Also flagging is Grindah, who is struggling mentally with the prospect of leaving Brentford.
