The Sophisticated Psychos receiving Zoom calls from their wacky therapists. The improv comedy series highlights them seeking expert help to gain a healthier perspective. This web series gives comedy a fresh and honest way to look at a relationship that feels oddly relatable in its intensity and vulnerability and is based on real-life experiences. The show captured comedy lovers’ hearts with the therapists’ confusing advice, combined with the authentic reactions of the co-hosts.

Couples Therapy is a family-friendly improv comedy web series featuring the “power couple” and a relationship therapist played by Alessandra Levy. The Sophisticated Psychos sought to make the series a useful tool for couples living and working together during the COVID-19 lockdown.
