About the Series

This project began as a playful improv between Kaitlin Huwe and Stephanie Erb backstage, while doing a play at their theatre company. Their chemistry ignited delight in the social media sphere, and led to the production of 16 episodes of Therapy with Pami.

We hear rave reviews from teenagers, millennials, baby boomers, gay, straight, trans, cis men, cis women, and even some grandmas. Everyone is charmed by this delightful train wreck.  Pami highlights the absurdity of 1st world problems, the price of modern beauty, and the sh*t you do on Lunesta.

Everyone loves Pami.
