If Louie lived in Broad City, he'd be friends with these Darlings.
Join these little Darlings as they embark upon the rejection-strewn and disappointment-riddled path to a questionable level of success in Vancouver's comedy scene. No one expects the strait-laced Roger and his spacey roommate Allison to make a dent on the comedy circuit, but these comedy Darlings are determined to prove them wrong. A backstage pass into the competitive world of sketch and improv comedy, as seen through the eyes of two performers: the clever but cautious Roger and his roommate, the hilarious but erratic Allison. A unique glimpse at what happens when two best friends try to take comedy seriously.

    Didn't work for me. I don't get the concept and the comedy of it.

    Really liked the laid-back comedy of this teaser. Good chemistry between Allison and Roger/Canadian-Fred-Armisen.
