Don't Panic
Comedy / Graham Hotel
Kate Pinchuck attempts to navigate millennial angst and the societal pressure to have a house, 2.4 kids, a thriving career, and zero mental health issues by the age of 21, even though she is 31 and has none of those things. It's fine though, she has a comedy show instead, and sometimes moving back in with your psychologist parents can be hilarious, especially because you don't have to do your own laundry. Being an adult is terrifying, but don't panic! She's going to talk you through it.
