Shells Hoffman (Roslyn Hart), fictional (but all-too-familiar) Manhattan worker drone
Why you should be obsessed:
Wall Street creep by day, plastered chanteuse by night, and drunk-dialing stalker in perpetuum, Shells Hoffman is the demented creation of writer-performer Roslyn Hart and writer-director Nick Chase (who brings a queer eye to the straight gal's art). Loyal fans have followed the character through years of shows at Joe's Pub, bearing appalled witness to her desperate, hilarious self-absorption.—AF
