"I read on the internet that ladies like confident dudes with swagger."

"If it'd be okay with you, can I call my mom real quick and put her on speaker?" These are the most distressing words someone can hear on a first date. The second most unwelcome phrase? "Do you like salsa music? You'll be blown away when you hear the bass come out of the sub." In the brilliant third episode of Be Here Now-ish, salsa-blasting subwoofers, orgasmic chanting, face-lifting work-outs, and socially inept men are just a side effect of city living.

Watch it all unfold in the hilarious, surprising new comedy web series by independent filmmakers Alexandra Roxo and Natalia Leita. Be Here Now-ish follows the lives of Sam, a dating coach, and Nina, a pot delivery woman, as they work, hook up, and stumble their way through the men and women of New York and L.A., all on their path to finding a spiritual awakening. 

Be Here Now-ish features the talents of Karley Sciortino of Slutever, Caitlin Fitzgerald of Masters of Sex, and Kyp Malone of TV on the Radio. Look out for future episodes of Be Here Now-ish, premiering every week on Nerve.
