Three guys start a hedge fund in Brooklyn. Only one problem. Nobody knows what a hedge fund is. Think, “American Psycho,” but funnier. In this opening episode, Claude overhears Dickerson and VanMeter talking cars and money and decides he can have a hedge fund, too. Which is good because he’s going to need a new career after getting fired from his job as a waiter by Jackie, who vaguely resembles and sounds like Chrystia Freeland.
VanMeter: “What are you doing next weekend?”
Dickerson: “I’m gonna be in Sardinia, uh, 500-foot yacht. Call me on my sat phone if you need anything.”
VanMeter: “I can’t, I’m gonna be in space.”
Dickerson: “F**k you.”
VanMeter: “For real. I got the first civilian ticket on the new Chinese space program’s shuttle. You know in space they let you wipe your ass with hundred-dollar bills.”
And on like that. First in a series, apparently. Good for a giggle.
