A smart sketch tale of two young women who grew up to be more or less "girl-ish." This buzzworthy revue is grounded in the true life experiences of stars Stephanie Anderson and Alex Bellisle, and weaves heart and humor with music, movement, a little absurdity, and a lot of fun! 

Chicago natives Alex Bellisle and Stephanie Anderson have penned a poetic (and hilarious) portrayal of feminism in the 21st century. Their 2 woman sketch revue, Girlish - takes you on comedic journey from gender norms of childhood to career womanhood and everything in between. You will even get to see them bring back hoop skirt fashion…and who wouldn’t want to see that? For an hour filled with over the top laughter that leaves you with a thought-provoking aftertaste- be sure to get tickets to Girlish!

After a very successful show run at MCL Chicago, and The Chicago Women’s Funny Festival- Girlish heads to NYC for Fringe! These women have honed their craft in the Chicago comedy scene, appearing at The Second City, The iO Theater, and beyond. Laugh along as they reminisce about the life experiences and social perspectives that have made them the comedians they are today.
