British performer and creator Michaela Coel burst onto the UK’s comedy scene with a sassy, awkward, whirlwind of a character in the form of Tracey. At its very best, Chewing Gum is a cringe-worthy, audacious and ebullient look at a young woman’s quest not just to have sex but to transcend the boundaries of her council estate.
