Synopsis

Four 19-year-old girls, Fubuki Kitakaze, Mafuyu Kogarashi, Rin Araya, and Nayuta Asougi, aim to become comedians by working hard to reach their dream while spending days and nights doing part-time jobs. The four of them try their best to make everyone happy in order to make themselves happy too, but things don't seem to work out. At first, their goal was to appear at the event "Owarai Kai no Budoukan", which was held on the stage of Namba Grand Kagetsu. However, they decided to start with the most familiar place, the farm class at the Yoshimoto Mugendai Hall in Shibuya, Tokyo.

Manatsu (Mafuyu's younger sister) and Kanae are first-year classmates and also aim to become high school comedian girls and are rivals (according to their opinions) of "JK Cool". A story featuring the daily and struggling lives of eight comedians divided into four groups.
