ET's Mark Steines sits down with the two stars of the new CBS sitcom 2 Broke Girls, and they explain how the show's approach to comedy is groundbreaking.
The show focuses on two down-on-their-luck waitresses who become friends while trying to make a living at a Brooklyn diner. "The thing they instantly have in common is that they are both broke, completely broke, for totally different reasons," explains Kat Dennings, one of the show's stars.
Kat acknowledged that some of the dialogue is racy and she said this is one of the first shows to have women deliver those kind of lines. "This is a whole new ball game in comedy, I think. Usually with this kind of talk, it would be given to men." Her co-star Beth Behrs said this aspect has made filming the series a blast: "It's so much fun. It's so much fun that we get to be the ones executing the jokes."
Watch the video to hear the stars' opinions on whether their characters will find love in the diner and to hear Beth's real-life waitress experience that led to a breakdown her very first night!
2 Broke Girls airs tonight at 8:30 p.m. on CBS.
