Los Angeles, CA – Prolific Content Creator Stephanie Thorpe has done it again with the new series, “The Ladies & The Gents”. Joining forces with fellow lauded web professionals: Steven Lekowicz, Robb Padgett & Tanya Ihnen (Vampire Zombie Werewolf & Life on the Inside–currently on My Damn Channel) and Avi Glijansky (The Further Adventures of Cupid & Eros, Silverlake Badminton Club), they have produced a series which will leave you in stitches and question everything that happens in a public restroom.
Thorpe is one of the writers, directors, producers & actors in the new comedy, which explores the shenanigans during ‘One night, One LA club, Two restrooms, 40 Stories’. “The Ladies & The Gents” premiered to rave reviews at a 500+ bash in LA on March 19th, 2013. It is now on YouTube and the website TheLadiesandTheGents.com with new episodes rolling out over the next 20 weeks, airing every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.  Thorpe stars in “The Ladies” episode #10 this week alongside model & fellow geek Jennifer Newman.

On screen and off, Thorpe is joined by over 140 web-celebs that were brought together by a shared love for comedy and innovative content. Peek out from behind the mirror and get a glimpse of all the crazy, funny and ridiculous things that go on in the bathrooms of a douchey Los Angeles club over the course of a single night. Shot in one take with no cuts or edits, each episode is like sketch comedy meets one-act play. Only with less Pinter. The ‘Ladies’ series is written, directed, acted and produced all by women. Thorpe comments: “It was amazing to bring all this talent on board! We really wanted to provide a framework for writers and directors to get their ideas made, and bring the web community together for a huge production!”Simultaneously, Thorpe is also creating and starring in the new series “Slumber Con”. Touted as ‘The View…for nerds’, Thorpe and fellow geek girl Jennifer Landa host slumber party-style chats about the latest in nerd entertainment, crafts, food & style (www.slumbercon.com). And, of course she’s thrilled to be holding the Film/TV right to her favorite childhood comic ElfQuest and looks forward to San Diego Comic-Con this summer to get her panel on & celebrate the iconic comic’s 35th Anniversary!
