Funny Girls is a collective of comedic artists building self-esteem and encouraging creative expression through comedy for women of all ages.
Kaira Williams was a finalist for Funniest Person in Grand Rapids 2017 & 2018, and voted 2nd favorite comedian in 2018 by readers of Revue West Michigan. Kaira keeps it professional as the Communications Manager for Funny Girls, and is one half of the duo, Inaccurate & Inappropriate. She struggles to split time between being the world's biggest NKOTB fangirl and practicing her craft. Her humor reflects her personality as a loud, unashamed feminist with self-esteem issues. Her stand-up is an oral biography of the worst things about herself, and the absurdities of being a single 30-something woman.
Kristin Hirsch is a lover of things, which include but are not limited to salty snacks, Gin and improv. She got her start in improv in California, studying at ComedySportz San Jose, before moving back to her hometown of Grand Rapids. She joined Funny Girls at its inception and has never looked back or been more entertained. She is enjoying diving more into sketches, both writing and performing, although still finds memorizing lines difficult when she's so used to saying whatever weirdness comes to her mind. In addition to Funny Girls she can be seen performing with her other comedy love, No Outlet Improv Troupe. She's been told her whole life that her humor is "dry" which might be better than "wet" because that sounds messy.
Katie Milbourne is a performer and sketch writer with a proclivity toward organization—which makes her perfect for her role as the Operations Manager. When she isn't writing, researching, practicing, or performing with the Funny Girls, she spends her time reading or trying to eat as much pizza as possible, despite her lactose intolerance. She loves being a part of a group of strong, independent women, and she thinks it would make her one true love (Hillary Clinton) proud.
