Samuel is a 25 year old filled with anxiety. He wants to be a comedian but the moment he steps on the stage he isn’t funny. He hates to drink and pop pills but does it all the time anyway. He has confused feelings for his stepfather and frustration with his mother. He cares about other people but doesn’t know how to show it. He is insecure, and takes it out on others. He knows Carly like the back of her hand. They spend a lot of time together even though they bicker for most of it.
Saul (35-45) is a very strongly opinionated man in a bubble. He is a good comedian but steals most of his material. He dreams of being a great comedian and believes Hannah can get him there. People love him so his ego is at an all time high. He loves his somewhat new wife but is open to anything really. If he were aware of himself he would be very insecure.
Hannah (45-55) has business in her blood. She’s on top of everything all the time except when it comes to her sons feelings. She loves to micro manage everyone around her and is very confident and will say whatever is on her mind. It’s her way or the high way. If she didn’t have such cheap parents she would have gone to an Ivy League school, and became a politician or Warren Buffet.
Carly (20-25) is an intelligent girl. She just gradated college so she still has hopes and dreams. Carly loves to be in control, and is self-aware. However she is slightly insecure. She loves Samuel but doesn’t exactly know how to show it. He annoys her a lot because he is actually annoying, but she also sees a lot of herself in him. She knows Samuel like the back of her hand. They spend a lot of time together even though they bicker for most of it.
