Series 3, Episode 4 - Bob A Job

Toast takes part in a Royal Variety Performance hosted by Bob Monkhouse.

Further details

Persuaded by Jane at the promise of a potential role as the 'British Attaché' in Kevin Spacey's House Of Cards, Toast takes part in a Royal Variety Performance hosted by Bob Monkhouse.

Whilst Toast is trying to cope with Monkhouse's constant jokes and the strain of working with Ray Purchase yet again, Scramble Studio's Danny Bear is getting ready for a life changing operation. When it's time to go under the knife however it seems Ed's recommended 'surgeon' may cut a few corners to save a bob or two.

Although Toast's legendary Sand Dance performance might go well he still doesn't have a clue what Monkhouse is on about.
