Week #1 Show Teaser Cheap Smokes

After a long road trip from Toronto, Kaitlin and Laura have finally made it to Los Angeles to chase their dreams of becoming comedy superstars. Once arriving, they immediately lose their apartment, become homeless and bomb their first set. So naturally they decide to go out on the town and get s%&$ faced! In the morning they wake up in their car/home and try to piece together the night.

Synopsis

Best buds, Kaitlin and Laura, have just quit their jobs, left their homes, kissed their parents goodbye and hopped in their two door Honda Civic to drive out to the City of Angels to chase their dreams.

Once arriving in LA, the girls are quickly bombarded with failures and curve balls. Whether it's sleeping in their car, having threesomes in a hostel bunk bed, or getting arrested for peeing in public they always seem to remain optimistic.

Through the meltdowns, the rejection, the sex, drugs, and alcohol, Kaitlin and Laura never have a dull moment and always seem to get themselves into the most ludicrous situations. Just like Harry and Lloyd, they are two loveable idiots.
