Edgar used to be Jimmy's pot dealer in college, but the two lost touch when Edgar joined the Army and did a couple tours in Iraq. Now back home, Edgar finds himself grappling with PTSD and searching for his place in the world. Now that he’s found a passion for improv comedy and a girlfriend, his search has a little more direction.
Edgar and Jimmy reconnected a few years ago when Jimmy found him living on the streets. Now Edgar lives with Jimmy rent-free. In exchange, Edgar does light housework and cooks all of Jimmy's meals. Though Jimmy would be the last to admit it, Edgar has become his closest (and probably only) friend.
