Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Funny Girls is a reality series about a group of women trying to make it as stand-up comics. There's lots of edgy humor, including endless strong language ("hell," "piss," "bitch," "crap"; curses and the "N" word bleeped), strong sexual innuendo (some also bleeped), blurred nudity, and drinking. There's references to marijuana use, too. The women are working hard to get their comedy noticed as they face the challenge of being female in a male-dominated profession. If your teens are into comedy, they may enjoy the show, but otherwise it's standard reality fare.
Is It Any Good?
The series offers some insight into what it takes to be a comedian -- especially a female comedian -- in Los Angeles. But much of the conflict comes from some of the interpersonal relationships among the comics, their friends, and others. Luckily, quick excerpts from the women's stand-up performances and guest appearances by folks such as Margaret Cho keep things upbeat. It's pretty edgy, but if you like this sort of reality fare, you'll probably enjoy the occasional chuckle.
Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
