    CHICAGO, IL, January 31, 2018 /24-7PressRelease/ -- A new web series, "Super Narcoleptic Girl" (#SNG), announced today a live show and full screening of the 8-episode (28 min), SAG New Media web series in Chicago on February 5th, 2018 at 7:30pm at Annoyance Theater, 851 W. Belmont Ave. Tickets are free and can be reserved via the Annoyance Website. The trailer and more information can be found via the Super Narcoleptic Girl Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, IMDB page and website.

The brainchild of Chicago comedians Sarah Albritton (Sleeping with Sarah Podcast) and Catherine "Povs" Povinelli (Edinburgh Fringe Festival), #SNG follows the story of a low-level, narcoleptic superhero with the power to make people dance as she struggles to save the day and stay awake. Produced and created in Chicago through One Step Below, Inc., the series features seasoned local talent including Greg Hollimon (Strangers with Candy, Shrink).

The series aims to increase narcolepsy awareness as one of the co-creators/co-stars, Sarah Albritton, is narcoleptic. The episodes center around Keelyn Klein, a superhero, and her struggles living with this highly misunderstood disorder.

"Though the characters live in a fictional world, the portrayal of narcolepsy is nothing but realistic. All of the Narcolepsy elements in the series are inspired by my own personal experiences", said Sarah Albritton, co-writer and co-star of the series. Both Sarah and Catherine have been involved in the Chicago comedy scene for several years and met doing stand up.

The Chicago show will feature stand up from local comedians including Shannon Noll (Lincoln Lodge, We Still Like You), Sonal Aggarwal (Congrats on Your Success, Code-Switched Web Series) and hosted by Kevin Kellam (WKQX Radio).

The series will also have screenings in Brooklyn, NY on Feb. 9th and Los Angeles on Feb. 15th. The series will be released online Feb. 15th via Facebook, YouTube and Vimeo.

One Step Below, Inc. is a Chicago-based production company created in 2017 and co-founded by Sarah Albritton and Catherine "Povs" Povinelli. Super Narcoleptic Girl is their flagship production.
