WHO ARE THE FANS? Women love it because it´s smart, honest, hysterical and relatable. Young boys love it because it´s sexy. Men love it because it´s genuinely funny. Young girls love it because they all want to be us. Gay men love it because they all want to be us. Grandmas love it because it´s not "too" dirty. Couples love it because it´s interactive. Feminists love it because we´re not self deprecating and Scientologists love it because were not on medication. (at least not while performing)
