Asim
Chaudhry

Actor, writer and director.

Asim is an award-winning actor and writer who is best known for co-creating the BAFTA Award winning People Just Do Nothing (BBC). Asim, who stars in the show as ‘Chabuddy G’, received a BAFTA nomination for Best Male Comedy Performance and a win at the Royal Television Society Awards for Best Comedy Performance.

People Just Do Nothing itself has been hugely successful, receiving nominations for Best TV Situation Comedy at the Writer's Guild Awards and Best Scripted Comedy at the 2016 BAFTAs. In 2017, they won Best Scripted Comedy at the BAFTAs, the Royal Television Society Awards and won Best Television Series at the NME Awards. People Just Do Nothing’s altar ego, Kurupt FM won 'Garage Act of The Year' at the GQ Men of the Year Awards in 2017. In 2019, Kurupt FM announced their return with a brand-new podcast with Audible, The Kurupt FM Podkast, which is now on its second series and won twice for Best Comedy Podcast at the British Podcast Awards 2020 and 2021. 

Asim returned as ‘Chabuddy G’ in the hugely successful feature film People Just Do Nothing: Big in Japan which was released to rave reviews, including ★★★★-The Guardian and ★★★★- Digital Spy. The Sun also gave it a ★★★★★ review, and stated that the film had “incredible writing, non-stop quotable lines and perfect pace”. Asim and the rest of PJDN’s second studio album was also released alongside the film via Universal subsidiary Polydor Records.

If you’ve ever flown on British Airways, you may recognise Asim as ‘Chabuddy G’ from their pre-flight safety video. The hilarious sketch follows the inept director Chabuddy, as he tries to direct actors Sir Michael Caine, Naomie Harris and Olivia Colman. The video promoted Flying Start, the global charity partnership between British Airways and Comic Relief raising over £20m.

Asim can currently be seen in cinemas alongside Benedict Cumberbatch in new biopic The Electrical Life of Louis Wain and stars as ‘Abel’ in the highly anticipated 2022 Netflix series The Sandman. Asim played ‘Dev’ alongside Stephen Merchant in the Christmas crowd-pleaser Click and Collect (BBC/Netflix). Asim is also a talented writer and director, this can be seen in his successful short film Love Pool.

Asim won an international EMMY for his hilarious performance in Hoff the Record (UKTV). Other notable credits include Patty Jenkins’ Wonder Woman 1984 (Warner Brothers), Michael Winterbottom’s Greed (Revolution Films) and Charlie Brooker’s critically acclaimed Bandersnatch (Netflix). Asim is thrilled to be playing ‘Ed’ in the upcoming romcom The Honeymoon directed by Dean Craig.

He is also a well-known face on TV from shows such as the immensely successful Taskmaster (Dave), The Last Leg (Channel 4), I Literally Just Told You (Channel 4) and Sky's Dating No Filter.
