Tonight at 9:30pm - REAL GIRLS: Lena Dunham Got It Wrong is a storytelling show you don’t want to miss.
It’s like Girls, only without the fancy apartment in Greenpoint and Adam Driver! You know … real.
Bad apartments, crappy jobs, blah dates, infestations of various sorts — you know, the New York dream.
Come hear hilarious, gross, awkward, and heartfelt stories of some “real” New York ladies (and that means hilarious comediennes) of how they started out in NYC.
Featuring Emmy Blotnick, Lisa Kleinman, Melissa Caminecci, Andrea Macy and Natalie Wall.
Hosted by Mallory Schlossberg, who actually is a Girls fan, but once lived in a basement.
