Young girls love it because they all want to be us. Gay men love it because they all want to be us. Grandmas love it because it´s not "too" dirty. Couples love it because it´s interactive. Feminists love it because we´re not self deprecating and Scientologists love it because were not on medication. (at least not while performing)
Lindsey always had a love for comedy. After she moved to L.A. she took the entry-level sketch-writing class at the Upright Citizen´s Brigade and was immediately invited into their coveted master class with Matt Besser. So she had a talent for it too.
This inspired Lindsey and a few other talented friends to form a production company and sketch group called Reckless Tortuga. They filmed some of Lindsey´s sketches and put them up on YouTube. In a matter of months, Reckless Tortuga became a viral sensation. Their sketch-comedy shorts and original web series pull in over one million views per week and over two-hundred million total views... and counting. Lindsey stays extremely busy writing, producing and performing in weekly content with Reckless Tortuga, in addition to taking care of her two babies at home... her six month old and her husband.
