Bridget Bracken, a junior in college, ventures into the filthy, fuzzy underbelly of Austin comedy (the less popular, more slovenly younger sibling of the slacker city’s famed live music scene). Along the way, she forges alliances with Lex, Pia and Christina, other young women carving out their own paths as adults and performers.
Lex: Early 20s. Recent college graduate with colorful sexual past and steadily worsening social anxiety.
Bridget: Late teens/early 20s. College sophomore, new to comedy and trying hard to fit in.
Pia: Early-mid 20s. Dislikes labels.

Jared – Male, 20-35. Bike courier. Hip, confident, soft-spoken, tattooed.
Jazzbones – Male, 25-35. Pia’s burnout neighbor. Sometimes creepy, sometimes supportive, always intoxicated.
Doctor – M/F, 30-50. Tactless gynecologist.
Jeff – Male, 20-35. LA improvisor and actor. Modest, nervous about making a good impression.
Mack – Male, 25-35. LA improvisor and actor. Cocky, predatorial.
