Rods and Cones is a comedic series starring Carole Murphy and Mitzi Fitzsimmons, played by Beth Lisick and Tara Jepsen. Tara and Beth have been collaborating since 1999 on sketch comedy, theatrical presentations, short films, and rogue performance art. In July 2014 they will release their comedic web series Rods and Cones.
The first season of Rods and Cones focuses on Carole and Mitzi’s adventures with The MILFies. The MILFies (played by phenomenal talents Jibz Cameron and Erin Markey) are performance artists in their 30′s trying to make some real money by pretending to be Mommy comics (GREAT MOVE, GALS!!). George and Bess taunt Carole and Mitzi into entering a women’s comedy contest in Los Angeles, The Over the Shoulder Comedy Boulders festival. The grand prize is a place on a comedy reality show. The season follows these four women as they get to know each other, blow each other, and show each other their bizarre emotional landscapes, great jokes and weird bodies.
