The show will be a series of sketches linked by a behind-the-scenes narrative and recurring characters, commenting on being a woman, modern life and the world we live in.

It was described to Spy as a bit like Inception - a skit within a skit.
Many of the stars are busy off-shore with work commitments, so the layered approach to the show makes sense. Crossman and Matafeo have sketches on Jono and Ben in the bag, as has Sami in Super City. Marshall and Prebble's crossover into comedy will be interesting. Spy hears they are both funny - judge for yourself.
Funny Girls is coming to TV3 soon.
