"I never thought I would be almost falling out of my chair laughing watching the male version of many conversations in my head that aren’t always funny. I particularly loved seeing two men of color in such a joyous partnership with a distinct comedic voice finding the funny in these unfunny times."
-Lorna Silva, Impro_LA
