"Funny Girls" (TV show) is a humorous, irreverent reality docu-series on Oxygen 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.

This funny series showcases up-and-coming female comediennes living in Los Angeles as they strive to break the glass ceiling in the male-dominated comedy business. It's a profession where women fight for survival of the funniest, and these sassy young comediennes will give viewers a peek inside their lives as they struggle to balance their career, relationships and friendships in and outside the industry. Their journey is anything but perfect and these non-conforming women share their uniquely humorous perspectives that come with the pursuit of comedic fame.

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.



The series goes backstage at some of LA's underground comedy clubs to show what goes into creating a standup performance. The women work day jobs to pay the bills while they hustle to get on an open mic at night, honing their sets and learning from comedy greats. The cast will be mentored by well-respected comedians including Margaret Cho, Bill Burr, Loni Love, Janeane Garofalo and Horatio Sanz who appear as guest stars.

Oxygen's "Funny Girls" is produced by Brownstone Entertainment with Drew Brown and Bob Gillan serving as executive producers.
