Hi guys! Today we’re going to tell you about a very popular sitcom called “2 broke girls”.
It is an American sitcom created for Warner Bros Television by Michael Patrick King and Whitney Cummings. It premiered in September 2011 in the USA.
Two best friends, Max and Caroline, work in a cafeteria in the neighbourhood of Brooklyn, New York City and they would like to start a cupcake business.
They live in poverty, but Caroline grew up in a billionaire family!
Here’s the description of the main characters below.
She is a poor working girl who had a rough childhood because of her mother who was always absent and incompetent: she was a drug addict.
She’s a waitress at the Williamsburg Diner. She was a rich girl who lost all her money when her father was arrested. Max is her co-worker and best friend.
He has been the cashier at the Diner since 1962 and a former musician. He loves marijuana: you shouldn’t be like him!
He is a Ukrainian chef. He harasses Max and Caroline with inappropriate jokes.
He is the owner of the Williamsburg Diner. He comes from South Korea and he often references his name.
