Mae Martin stars as herself, a Canadian comedian living in London, navigating a relationship with her new girlfriend, George and dealing with sobriety. This is Feel Good and it drops on Netflix March 19th.
Feel Good stars Mae Martin as Mae, a rising talent on the stand-up circuit and recovering addict whose addictive behaviors and intense romanticism dominate every single part of her life. When she meets pragmatic – but so far heterosexual – George (Charlotte Ritchie) she’s smitten, and much to her surprise George feels the same. They embark on an intoxicating romance as Mae juggles relationships with her parents, fellow addicts in a drugs support group, her colleagues at the local stand up club, and most importantly tries to transform her relationship with George from an addictive one to a healthy one. But the real question is can Mae replace a toxic addiction to love with love itself. Feel Good is a deeply personal, dark but hilarious story about two young people navigating the modern-day landscape of love, addiction, and sexuality, trying to form a meaningful and lasting connection.
Of Feel Good Mae says; “I’m beyond excited for people to finally see my semi-autobiographical show Feel Good. I really hope that people laugh, connect with the characters, and root for Mae and George as a couple. We tried to make a show that’s funny, heartbreaking, and occasionally completely bizarre, because that’s what life is like.”
