In School Of Comedy, adolescent comedic actors take on the world of adults.

The sketches feature a wide range of characters, including an extremely rude landlady, a cross-dressing Easter European plumber, some white van men, an eccentric estate agent, a sexually repressed couple from the 1930s, and some hapless South African security guards.

Series 2 sees the return of The Saffas, Museum Perv and The Cabbie as well as a raft of brand new pint-sized characters including: The Filth, two self-referential coppers from the 1970s, and Leonard Lizard, a repressed homosexual city trader from the 1980s.
