Laugh, cry...and then laugh until you cry as you meet five of Chicago's funniest female comedians. Patti, Kellye, Lisa, Natalie, and Jessica are bound together by friendship and the shared desire to make it big by making people laugh. Can they prove that a sense of humor is enough to get them through anything? Can they keep 'em laughing as they struggle to pay bills, raise kids, maintain relationships, and work mind numbing day jobs? Find out if life really is a joke as each gal gets what could be...her big break.
Patti, Latina supermom, headliner and breadwinner, hits the road to support her family; Kellye, a funny and fierce African-American engaged mother of two, finds her voice as she opens up about the recent death of her daughter; Lisa, dog groomer by day and funny lady by night, lands her first real paying gig at the renowned Laugh Factory; Natalie, the newbie from old money, prepares to perform for her seemingly disapproving father for the first time; and Jessica, a cancer survivor and the quirky sketch comedienne, gets a surprising call from Saturday Night Live.
