Katharine Ferns appears to be a sweet Canadian comic but stories about her misadventures are both dark and brutally funny. From her eccentric family, romantic failures, depression, drugs and overdosing to struggles for redemption, Katharine finds humour in all her mistakes but not necessarily solutions. As her therapist once said, Katharine is a conscious incompetent. She is aware of all her problems but she is unable to fix any of them. With this diagnosis, what else can you do but laugh?
