Webseries Review: Stand Up Girls

Stand Up Girls was created by Amy K. Green & Blair Skinner. Stand Up Girls  is a “scripted series about stand up female comedians and their horribly, misguided views on life.” Jenna Brister (Harper), Stephanie Kornick (Ursula), and Hollie Lee (Dolores) are all real life stand up comedians, bringing a unique perspective to this webseries.

I watched all eight episodes of the first season which is available on line. Production is decent, though attempts to create a bunch of different apartments was maybe a bit ambitious, and I suspect a bookcase was used in two different sets. Each episode is about five minutes long and full of awkward, agonizingly so, hilariously so, moments. My favorite line was: “But then I thawed out and became a woman again.”Some of the stand up was not my favorite, some of it made me guffaw. I liked the interweaving of stand up to real life, because that is where  the good stand ups get their material, and it seemed more realistic and made it all a bit funnier.

Reminiscent of Awkward Embraces, Stand Up Girls will add a few chuckles to your day and make you glad your problems don’t include homeless squatters, a magician as an employer, or a mic in front of you every night.
