Plot Synopsis

FUNNY GIRLS is a one-hour reality series that follows the professional and personal lives of six female comics in Los Angeles who are climbing their way to the top of the stand-up ladder. While the comediennes differ in their levels of experience, styles of comedy and ultimate career goals, they share the ambition -- and the passion -- needed to make it in the City of Dreams. From working multiple jobs, to clashing with parents' expectations, to yet another bad date, the comics provide a fresh, witty perspective on experiences to which young millennial women can relate. Along the way, the cast is mentored by well-respected comedians including Margaret Cho, Bill Burr, Loni Love, Janeane Garofalo and Horatio Sanz who appear as guest stars. Featured comedians include: Scout Durwood (aka Lady Scoutington), originally from Mission Hills, Kansas, who worked as a cabaret singer in New York City before heading to Los Angeles to pursue a career in mainstream comedy; Calise Hawkins, a comedian and writer who hails from Jersey City, New Jersey, who is a mother to her 8-year-old daughter, Asha, and has appeared multiples times on late-night talk shows; Yamaneika Saunders, born and raised in Aberdeen, Maryland, who has tackled both the New York and Los Angeles comedy scenes by combining her high energy improv skills; Nicole Aimee Schreiber, a Detroit native, who did not pursue comedy immediately and graduated from the University of Michigan with a degree in Pre-Med and Art History; New York native Stephanie Simbari, a comic, actress and bonafide yogini, who can be seen performing regularly at The Comedy Store in Los Angeles and is currently opening for notable comedians Whitney Cummings and Ben Gleib; and Ester Steinberg, a comedy writer and performer based in Los Angeles, who started her career performing stand-up on high school lunch tables in Tampa, Florida.
