The Ballad of Hipster McBigballs takes place in Christen Hailey’s bizarre Perilousiverse (her previous offerings were Sexy, Sexy Murder and Chapel Perilous). Think of it as another prequel story somewhere on a different point in the time/space continuum. Fans of the past productions will remember the characters of Mae & Jake, Barra, the Ninja Bitch Lady Assassins, and the location of the K-Hole bar in Bonzai Beach, FL. This episode is a love story, taking place at Mae & Jake’s bar, while they are away on some New Age fartfest.
Poor Morgan Jane Goldencrotch has just learned her dad (who owns the local car dealership) has been eaten by sharks. She returns to Bonzai Beach to hopefully reconnect with old friends Mae and Jake, but instead she becomes the focus of a sinister plot. Will she find escape and find love with uber-bartender Hipster McBigballs, or will she be sold like a pair of schoolgirl underpants to Japanese businessmen by Hipster’s nemesis, arch-villainess Cunty Psychopath?
