Four 19-year-old girls: Fubuki Kitakaze, Mafuyu Kogarashi, Rin Shintani, and Nayuta Asougi, who aim to become professional comedians, practice their joke materials hard while working as a part-time worker day and night. Their motto is „Make everyone happy with laughter! then their happiness makes us happy, too.“ But the success is still far away from them.
Their goal is to stand on the stage of Namba Grand Kagetsu, which is considered as „Budokan in the comedy entertainment world.“ But for now, they have decided to try to be on the nearest stage for them, the lowest level of Mugendai Hall in Shibuya, Tokyo, called „Farm Class.“ This is a struggling success story of the eight girls in four units.
