Synopsis:

The Outsider is a “Who’s on First” comedy about the wacky side of politics, which is pretty much every side, especially if you’re an “outsider.” Ned Newley is an extremely competent behind-the-scenes Lieutenant Governor, who is suddenly thrust into the national spotlight when the Governor and his staff are ousted for “bad behavior.” Now Ned and his Chief of Staff, Dave, who has no staff at all, have to figure out how to keep Ned from having a panic attack every time he’s in public. So Dave has swung into action and recruited a skilled pollster and a savvy “fix it man.” He’s also hired a temporary secretary, Louise Peaks, who is cheerful and confident, but can’t get names straight or know how to operate a telephone system, which is why she’s more temp than most temps. And when Louise photo-bombs Ned’s television interview, introducing herself as Assistant Governor, the race is on, and politics was never so funny.
