Comedy Queen

Comedy Queen

Thirteen-year-old Sasha has decided to become a stand-up comedian. Most of all, she wants to amuse her dad, who cries in the shower when he thinks no one is listening. At home, everything reminds her of her mother, who has passed away. However, Sasha refuses to cry. Secretly, she writes a list of everything she must do to survive her grief: shave off her hair, stop reading books, turn down the world's cutest puppy, and most importantly, become the one and only Comedy Queen.
