Happy Hour Feminism: Lipo-Draining Beer


HAPPY HOUR FEMINISM is a comedic web series SET in the future where women brazenly sit up and men politely sit down. Imagine a world where men worry about wrinkles and beer bellies, and suffer from a monthly hormonal curse, commonly known as the Wolf Period. Women Scientists, CEOs, and experts from every field join Anna, the hostess of the show, to discuss how to make men happy, introducing such original ground breaking products as Lipo-Draining Beer (a miracle belly-shrinking liquid that tastes like beer but isn’t…), Bald No More (Bon Jovi Hair in an Instant), and paranormal techniques to cure men of their Wolf Periods NATURALLY (think Twilight Zone meets PMS). Male models play the violin, buff men in Superman underwear jump out of pink halos, bourbon is generously drunk, and women relax about feminism while ruling the media, the airwaves and how men view themselves.

In the episode LIPO-DRAINING BEER, Anna talks with Dr. Lara Crownhead, a scientist and inventor of Lipo-Draining Beer, a miracle product that makes men skinny in three days. Evan Heartfield is their special guest, a live specimen, who wants to be skinny and desirable. All that and more happens to Evan, including the torturous side effects.
