The Story

Girls Only – The Secret Comedy of Women
Girls Only is an original comedy that celebrates the honor, truth, humor and silliness of being female. With a two-woman cast and audiences full of raucous, laughing ladies, the show has found quick popularity in its unique examination of all things girly. Born out of the earnest and sweetly ridiculous writings the two authors discovered in their girlhood diaries, the Girls Only mix of sketch comedy, improvisation, audience participation, and fun songs and videos will remind you that underneath, women all have very funny feminine similarities. Bring your mothers, daughters, sisters and girlfriends - we promise you’ll leave laughing!
