Ashley Gavin is a robot — a high-energy, high impact, hysterically funny, lesbian robot. Many of her fantastic jokes hit hard because she’s so good at communicating who she is and what she’s about within seconds of getting on stage, so we dedicated this episode to “Persona Bits”, i.e. jokes that only work once the audience knows the comic (or the comedic persona). Jeff and Harrison hope you love this as much as they loved recording it. You’d better!
