The journey of four hapless male wannabes; a Model, a Stuntman, a Dwarf Entertainer and a Stand-up Comedian, all trying (and failing) to find success in Auckland's ridiculously small entertainment industry.
It has been along time since we have seen a well produced all female ensemble cast, I am thinking probably A Big Girls Blouse or French and Saunders. Any one who is truly interested in comedy should look at this. All sketch comedy has good and bad sketches but there is a unquestionable overflowing of talent here.
Based around an ensemble cast of young women and their hapless producer trying to produce a sketch comedy in a world of male television executives. The platform gives the cast an opportunity to explore themes from a feminine point of view, from Truck ad's to Hip Hop dance videos do not escape there gaze. Creating funny and thought provoking humor an excellent shot in the arm for the metoo# age.
Sketch comedy is a fantastic training ground for developing talent and I can already see Jackie van Beek and Madeleine Sami delivering their new film Takia Waititi produced The Breaker Uppers and I expect comedians like Rose Matafeo and Laura Daniel to be seen more and more on our screens.
Funny girls shows excellent writing skill and quality performance from a largely very young group of talented girls and is really worth a look.
