"This Chicago-based comedy follows best friends Marlo and Addy as they navigate their early 20s and high femme girlfriends. Early on in the series, they're both left single when the two women they had been dating, Trina and Maxine (played by the same actresses who play Marlo and Addy), leave them for each other. It's OK, though, because viewers will know Marlo and Addy belong together by the end of the first episode—but will they (especially the particularly oblivious Marlo...)?
This is definitely a quirky show, with episodes dedicated to each girl watching/reacting to Blue Is the Warmest Color and another dedicated to Marlo's UTI. The series gets extra points for including other interesting queer characters, including a small cameo from a sassy devil."
"Start off with episode one, Love is Hard, where we witness Marlo’s breakdown after her breakup while Addy’s there to try and pick up the pieces. It’s hilarious and you learn a lot about their girls, their friendship and their very unfortunate events with women. Every episode gives you an inside look to the girls’ lives, their somewhat careers and their lady troubles. Reminiscent of Broad City’s early comedic internet sketches, Kennett and Fagan are excellent in portraying their characters to a T. My favorite part? Probably the mocking but not so mocking way they represent lives of artists who push the bounds of their creative levels."
"Proudly based in the comedy Mecca of the world, Chicago, Chapstick's goal is to normalize LGBTQ characters, while still staying true to their rainbow roots.
Created by Charlotte Kennett and Kearney Fagan, the cast and crew is comprised predominantly of LGBTQ individuals with every LGBTQ character on the show being played by an LGBTQ actor. The pair created Chapstick to provide more comedic content for LGBTQ people."
