Book early to be sure you don't miss this critically-acclaimed satirical smash!

 

Other People's Problems is a savage and hilarious response to the ever-expanding self-improvement industry.

 

An unhinged motivational speaker gives a self-help seminar.

Plain Jane attempts to find her mojo via a self-help sex tape.

 

Advice is a hot commodity, and these characters know it. Their questionable philosophies will leave you questioning yours.

Hey, we all got problems, man.
