Kabadasses is a Channel 4 Comedy Lab pilot. It aired on E4 and Channel 4 in November 2011. It was written by Nikesh Shukla, produced and directed by Anil Gupta and made by Objective Productions.

Bobby is a loveable dreamer with high hopes and no prospects. When his domineering girlfriend, Shobna, throws him out, Bobby finds himself back at his Dad's with his tail between his legs.

Bobby and his best mate Vin, a thug with a heart, decide that their best shot at redemption is to set up the world's first all-white, English Kabaddi team.

Obviously, with a makeshift squad and no idea of the rules, Bobby realises they need help. They find it in the shape of The Marauding Moustache, a legend in the East London League and a cross between Mr Miyagi and Homer Simpson.


Starring Shazad Latif, Jack Doolan, Tony Jayawardena, Josie Long, Ian Bonar, Kulvinder Ghir and Mandy Sidhu
