Leading Ladies: GRIF 17

About the Troupes:

Funny Girls is an inclusive collective of self-identified female comedians, improvisers, actors, writers, musicians, bloggers, YouTubers, and all around hilarious artists. They collaborate on sketches, music, mixed media, improv, and audience participation for live shows every month. Their mission is to work with women of all ages to build self-esteem and encourage creative expression through comedy.

Lady Parts Detroit is an all-female sketch and improv comedy troupe. While their sets are often centered in everyday conversations, the ladies pull apart these mundane interactions, using one line or phrase from each scene to turn their set into an interconnected wonderland of always clever, sometimes touching, consistently hysterical, and often physically embarrassing comedy.

The members of Dianasty have always had a passion for improv and music. The combination of these two worlds has been a dream come true for the three girls. Although the idea of musical improv without instruments was initially intimidating, the girls were up for the challenge. Dianasty draws upon their musical background to create a blend of a capella songs which showcase a variety of genres and talents. These songs create the inspiration for strong scene work among the three friends.
