This week’s Web Series Wednesday focuses on women who will (most likely) make you laugh. Antics range from thrift-store rejections to a middle-school pubes crisis in shows that feature more than one comedian who’s passed through “SNL” and multiple women who will show you that it’s okay (or at least hilarious) to be yourself and make out-of-the-box life choices.
If you can think of any web series that are as good as, if not better than, the following, feel free to let us know by emailing email@example.com/members.
This hilarious series on UCB Comedy’s YouTube home stars Sasheer Zamata of “SNL” (she also created the show with co-star, Nicole Byer, from MTV’s “Girl Code”). The brand of humor is reminiscent of “SNL” but superior, just as the protagonists’ adventures are reminiscent of mundane life struggles but somehow out of this world. Sasheer and Nicole make annoying problems endearing on this show about finding love (okay, that might be a stretch) and money.
Animated by Bento Box (of “Bob’s Burgers”) and picked by Comedy Central, this web series is appropriately inappropriate for a cartoon. It explores girls “coming of age” in a way that’s crude…because girls in junior high can be incredibly crude. Regular characters include a male classmate with lesbian moms who seems to be constantly naked on the toilet and former “SNL” cast member Horatio Sanchez as the girls’ black, Jewish special education teacher. The main characters share the first names of the shows’ creators, Dina Min Goodman and Julia Wolov.
