Description

Have you ever suffered from FUNNY GIRL SYNDROME? Are you the gal who makes people laugh? Are you considered "a lot of fun" and "a good sport"? Do all your male friends bring you their troubles and ask for your advice––about their girlfriends? If so, you will relate to Nina––a wry, hip, hilarious gal who is sure to make you laugh.

Nina has a roommate who showers with her cat. Nina has a college education she hasn't used. And Nina has waited tables at Bellyaches Comedy Den in Boston for way too long... She's heard it all: mother jokes, sister jokes, chick jokes, and fat jokes. And then some. She's served beer to half–broke hipsters, drinks to businessmen with bad dates, and occasionally hears something truly hilarious.

But what Nina hides from the world is that she is FUNNY. Because she has suffered in the past from Funny Girl Syndrome––you know, she makes you laugh but you won't take her on a date. But all that's about to change, because it's high school reunion time. And there's nothing like facing a gym–full of people you knew back ten years ago to make you want to pull up your socks and shine.
