Daily Dot Review

Nat and Gwen Mad Thumb“There are a lot of shows that feature awful people doing awful things, but new webseries Pretty Awful offers two new entries for the title of Worst Person.

The three-episode series was created by Austin comedian Amber Bixby and Dustin Svehlak, who runs production company Voltaic Video. Fellow Austin comedian Katie Pengra plays the expletive-spewing alpha dog Gwenifer, and Bixby is Natashley, a hair-twirling spaceball who punctuates sentences with Whip-It hits.

Pretty Awful Web Series has been lucky enough to secure an AWESOME Season 1 Premiere at The Highball Austin. This is the wonderful event space attached to the new Alamo Drafthouse South Lamar location. It’s totally free and will be kicking off at 8pm on February 15th. There will be games, prizes, and stand up comedy from the cast, including Lisa Friedrich, Maggie Maye, Avery Moore, and Rob Gagnon. Not to mention a screening of Pretty Awful Season 1 (don’t worry, it will only be about 30 minutes total, so you won’t be giving up much if you totally hate it. But you won’t.)! The whole evening will be hosted by Natashley and Gwenifer, the main characters of the series. Don’t miss out on the free Pretty Awful swag that will be given out to the first 50 attendees!
