Based on a true story, Comic Strips tells the story of Jordan Anderson, a stand up comedian turned rookie stripper. As she struggles to keep her new gig a secret, she is surprised to find herself as a part of a comically dysfunctional make-shift family who imbue her stand up with renewed vitality throughout the course of the series.

 

The series aims to highlight the parallels between the experiences of the stripper and the stand-up comic, emphasizing the competing forces of power and vulnerability that exist within both fields.
