rude. (New Orleans)
Colleen Allerton and Lauren LaBorde met in a sketch writing class at The New Movement. They are opposites — Colleen is a noisy extrovert with adult ADHD; Lauren has a writerly brain and a dour continence — but through their love of messy reality TV heroines, excessive white wine consumption, and varying degrees of feminism they have forged a bond on and off stage that is "real fun to watch" (said some guy once). Together they created the viral video "My Purse, My Choice," which received over 400,000 views and was featured on MSNBC, The Today Show, CNN, The New York Times and your mother's Facebook page. They also do improv together sometimes.
