Hubris Towers Season 1, Episode 7
Wanton Destruction

Ben Y. Faroe, Billie Hoard

Sabotage, sleep deprivation, and a literal wrecking ball are the least of Jimmy's worries. There's also Mother Robert.

It’s a frenzied day after a sleepless night for Jimmy, Ana, Billiam, and the rest of the Hubris Towers crew. The big inspection is only moments away, and the repairs are nowhere near finished.

After an impromptu overnight repair-a-thon, it’s up to Jimmy to get the janitors their payday, keep Gustav from sabotaging the men’s room, and find a way to help Ana prepare for her exams. But Mr. Schwartz isn’t interested in paying up, Gustav’s ear for double meanings is a little too good, and Ana isn’t exactly speaking to him at the moment. To top it all off, it’s demolition day, and Mother Robert is determined to witness the destruction of her old home.

And then there’s the little matter of a possible date with Ms. Leonelle, if Jimmy can just overcome the tasks of a modern day, cosmopolitan, service industry Hercules.

This is the seventh installment of Hubris Towers, a comedy series for fans of P. G. Wodehouse and Fawlty Towers. If you’re new to the series, sign up at to try the first two episodes on us.
