How do you break through mainstream media's glass ceiling? Does comedy perpetuate stereotypes? Are accents racist? Are people laughing at you or with you?


Asim and a group of friends with diverse backgrounds went against all odds to create PEOPLE JUST DO NOTHING a multi-award winning genre busting comedy. His character Chabuddy G has cult like legendary status as an iconic status as the unofficial mayor of Hounslow. He's a netflix star, and an incredible rapper. But all of this wasn't easy.


We explore the challenges and strategies of getting your creative work recognised in industry. Taking a look at his childhood and unique experiences as a young boy growing up in Hounslow, to his family, to a rebellious "fat girthy class clown" refusing cultural norms to become an actor and award winner.
