4 Funny Female-Centric Web Series to Watch – Besties Edition

4 funny web series

You may remember the post 4 Funny Female-Centric Web Series to Watch from last November. Well I hope you are ready for more! Here are 4 more web series sent in by show producers and publicists. These are are 4 of my favorites, I think you will like them, too.

Brunch on Sundays

Brunch on Sundays was submitted by series Writer/Producer/Actor Shira Weitz. Set in Brooklyn every Sunday, a distressed Charlie reveals her ‘sexscapades’ over brunch, her tales enhanced by quirky flashbacks of how they went awry. Charlie’s live-now-ask-questions-later mentality often leaves her with the short end of the stick, but her unwavering confidence keeps her hilarious.

 

 Roomsies


Jenny and Meagan sent this their funnny (with 3 n’s) sketch comedy series Roomsies about two roommates who do weird stuff in their apartment. That pretty much sums it up.

Wedding Season Workout – Laura Prangley

wedding season workout

Laura Prangley sent us her new sketch, Wedding Season Workout.  The idea was based around the fact that she has caught 13 bouquets at weddings.  It features a ton of hilarious NYC comedians.

 

Yoga Ladies from Up & Down Theatre Co.

 

yoga ladies

I was just in Denver and Boulder for 3 weeks. It was pretty much like this -

YOGA LADIES is a sketch from our satirical musical cabaret, WINNING THE FUTURE.  Up & Down Theatre (Robin Holloway, Kate Chavez, and myself) co-write and perform original sketches and songs that mock contemporary American cultural, economic, and political phenomenon.  This sketch just popped out in rehearsal one day as Kate and I were improvising a scene as Regan-era 80′s uber-capatalist power girlfriends, which somehow evolved into a conversation that very closely resembled the one you see in the sketch.  The imperialism theme emerged through improv, which feels like the greatest gift when trying to write a smart, funny comedy show.  I think this sketch has been among our most successful because we are really making fun of ourselves, and how vain the effort to avoid negatively impacting the planet or fellow human beings can feel as a first-world consumer.  I tried to do a cleanse once; that effort lasted about 30 hours.  I do love yoga though, and beeswax.

Janet’s Missed Connection

Janet Silverman is, in fact, a brilliant actor and writer but this is a true story. Names have NOT been changed to protect the innocent. Hopefully people can really relate to this experience, laugh at her insecurities, and share this like crazy so that Janet can find her Prince Charming and/or future murderer!

SERIOUSLY. If you know British Daniel: imbritishdaniel@gmail.com

International World State Pushup Champion ~ H. Lovelyn Bettison

funny champion

What the mind of man can conceive and believe, it can achieve.
-  Napoleon Hill

I’ve heard this quote a hundred times, but never really believed it until just the other day. You may wonder what changed. Don’t worry, I’ll tell you.

It was a Wednesday when I looked in the mirror and noticed the lack of definition in my arms. I was devastated until I realized that I had the power to change. So I got down on the floor right then and there and did a pushup … okay it was a half pushup. It was more like a quarter of a pushup, but it was close enough. That’s how it all began.
 

I’m writing this to you Funny not Slutties today as the International World State Pushup Champion. That’s right. All you need is a dream and a random combination of words ending with the word champion and you too could be a winner like me!

Don’t believe me? Just watch this interview I did with International World State Champions of the Universe Video Magazine for proof.

Hello all of you funny-not-slutty’s, slutty-but-funny’s and lovers of hoo-ha ha-ha’s! [Read more...]

Might we suggest “Chloe + Zoë?” – Natalie Wall

Meet Chloe (creator, writer, actor and sometimes director) + Zoe ( Actor, and sometimes writer). These two ladies are going to be your besties for the next 3-to-7 minutes. Why, you ask? Because they are awkwardly awesome.

Is it just me or is this era of the 20-something ladies, trying to get their shit together, but not really actively getting their shit together (the characters they portray, that is)? I sure as hell hope so.

Chloe and Zoe, let me just say, you two are pioneers, making a path for all other awkwardly hilarious 20-something-ers to embrace the funny. Expect to acquire many a lady fans, and hearing the phrase, “Oh these chick’s get just me,” on multiple occasions in the future. [Read more...]

Buttski & Glasscock Take the Stage Just for You – Natalie Wall

Well, maybe not solely for you. But maybe, especially if you are industry folk, then Buttski & Glasscock, (along with an array of hilarious character comedians), are definitely getting on the stage specifically for you.

For those of you that don’t know, few things:

  • Jenn is fucking hilarious.
  • The People’s Improv Theater is located 123 east 24th street, NYC.
  • Jenn is fucking hilarious.
  • This show is “character comedy.” In character comedy the comedian performs as though he/she is the character created by him/her…and…

4 Funny Female-Centric Web Series to Watch

One of the awesomest things about publishing FnS is that the funny often comes to me. We have recently had several web series sent in by show producers and publicists. Here are 4 of my favorites, I think you will like them, too.

words with girls series

Words With Girls

Brittani Nichols, the creator of Words With Girls submitted a comedy web series featuring herself and Hannah Hart of My Drunk Kitchen fame.  This mostly scripted but part-improv comedy webseries focuses on 20-somethings in Los Angeles. When they’re not busy navigating “the scene” or jumpstarting their careers, these women do what the young, gifted and bored do best: shoot the shit.

Blogologues

Webisoder at Lively Productions, Elaine White,  submitted Blogologues. The series concept is performing material found on the internet. They just happened to have re-inacted one of my all-time favorite humor posts on the planet, It’s Decorative Gourd Season, Motherf**kers from McSweeney’s. I hope they will pick a FnS post soon. I think Open Letter to The Creative Group would be fabulous (subtle hint). [Read more...]
