The Scummy Mummies

The Scummy Mummies are comedians Helen Thorn and Ellie Gibson. They co-host a podcast for less-than perfect parents, which is frequently number one on the iTunes Kids & Family chart, and featured in The Guardian's 50 best podcasts of 2016. Guests have included Sandi Toksvig, David Baddiel, Bryony Gordon, Jane Garvey, and Jo Elvin, along with midwives, childcare experts and stay-at-home dads.

Helen and Ellie also perform a live comedy show to sold-out audiences and packed festival crowds around the country. They have written for The Telegraph, Glamour and Smallish. Ellie appears as the games expert in hit TV show Dara O'Briain's Go 8 Bit, and Helen is performing a solo show at the 2017 Melbourne Comedy Festival.

Their first book - Scummy Mummies - is out on March 9 2017, published by Quadrille.
