Finally, living proof that girls are funny.

The Chicks and Giggles Comedy Anniversary show in Gowanus plans to prove once and for all that getting laughs isn’t just a man’s game.

“Our show was an active way of laying that argument to rest,” said Carolyn Castiglia. “You do not have to engage in the debate of whether women are funny if you are just out there being funny.”

Chicks and Giggles was originally a women’s comedy showcase that ran weekly in various venues in Manhattan and Brooklyn from 2004 through 2008. This massive show at Littlefield on Degraw Street between Third and Fourth Avenues celebrates the 10th anniversary of it inception, and will featuring comediennes who have spent years honing their jokes in front of New York City audiences as well as those who were just kids when it all started.

“There is something secretly fun about all-girl events that harkens back to sleep overs in middle school and making out with girls in the bathroom at all-girls colleges,” said Castiglia.

Featured comediennes include Ophira Eisenberg, Castiglia, Nichelle Stephens, Erin and Her Cello, Jessica Delfino, Jacquetta Szathmari, Kambri Crews, Abbi Crutchfield, Livia Scott, Michelle Buteau, Carla Rhodes, and Cecil Sinclaire.

The show will also feature a memorial to Jiwon Lee, who was found dead in the Hudson River last week. Lee graced the Chicks and Giggles lineup several times when it was a regular event.
