On September 5th a new web series is debuting on Wifey, a website started by the two badass feminist writer/creators Rebecca Odes and Jill Soloway. RODS AND CONES follows the adventures of two pairs of comedians competing at the Over the Shoulder Comedy Boulders Festival. Tara Jepsen and Beth Lisick star as Carole and Mitzi, whose Hot Mom act is the act to beat for their comic rivals, two struggling performance artists (played by Jibze Cameron and Erin Markey).
