Who is GIRLish?

Stephanie Anderson and Alex Bellisle make up the sketch and improv comedy duo GIRLish. Stephanie and Alex have been performing together since 2012 at Second City, iO Theater, and around the country. In 2016 they opened their self titled sketch show at MCL Chicago. After selling out their run they are taking GIRLish around the country.  GIRLish is a sketch tale of two young women who grew up to be "Girl-ish". This comedy revue is grounded in Steph
and Alex's true life experiences and woven with music, movement, a little absurdity and a lot of fun!

"I really enjoyed being challenged with my classmates to up our level of skill by letting go of preconceptions. So powerful!"

“They had amazing skills, clearly have taught together before (so seamless), and they made great connections between the exercises we did and the skills for building characters.”

“What a thrill to take a class from Stephanie and Alex. They are both extraordinary improvisors (as proven at that night's phenomenal show). Their tips on scene work and character development enhanced the skills taught in my other classes. Thanks, ladies!”

“GIRLish were very well organized in their instruction and easy to feel comfortable with. I'd definitely take another workshop with them again.”
