June Bloom is twenty-nine, broke, and an aspiring comedy writer.

Hugo Best is a beloved late-night chat show host - and notorious womaniser - who invites her to his mansion for Memorial Day Weekend.

This is the story of their four days together, a 'zippy... magnificent... devilishly fun ride' Vogue

Charting the four days June and TV icon Hugo Best spend together, Stay Up with Hugo Best is both a smart and timely exploration of sexual politics in the #MeToo age, and the hilarious and poignant story of one young woman's stumble into adulthood.
