Let's be real here, planning your girls' night can be pretty stressful. We've all been there when you're trying to figure out all the details involved with how the night can go down. Should you stock up on wine, beer, vodka, or all of the above? Should you serve tapas, wings, pizza, or any food available through Postmates? Obviously, a little bit of everything is always a good thing. But, the big question of the night is, of course, what should you and your ladies watch while chatting, drinking, eating, and having the time of your lives?
Sometimes you're in the mood for something scary or sad or even romantic, but we all know that most of the time you and your girls want to just sit back and laugh. Thankfully, we live in the golden age of comedy shows starring some fierce females that will have you howling the night away. Combine this with the easy accessibility to streaming TV shows and you have the perfect formula for girls' night! So, here are some shows that will surely have you and your ladies gasping for breath between laughs.
'Broad City' (2014 - )
This show will have you screaming YAAAASSS QWEEN after the first episode. If you haven't started watching the hilarious "Broad City," then you need to start immediately during your girls' night. The easily binge-worthy show, created by Abbi Jacobson & Ilana Glazer, stars the two hilarious comedians and depicts life as a 20-something in New York City. The pair gets into various adventures, usually fueled by their Mary-Jane-loving ways, so you know the show is guaranteed to make you ladies giggle the whole time.
'Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt' (2015 - )
No one here is saying that the show's opening song is the best part of this show, but when you listen to the auto-tuned man singing "FEMALES IS STRONG AS HELL," you'll be hooked. "Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt" stars the always adorable Ellie Kemper as the excitable, insanely happy, and impossibly optimistic Kimmy who was locked inside a bunker for most of her life. When she moves to New York City, she doesn't let all the worst parts of the good ol' concrete jungle get her down. With incredible supporting performances from Jane Krakowski, in her best "30 Rock" form, and breakout co-star Titus Burgess' rendition of "Peeno Noir" you will binge watch both seasons all night.
'Bob's Burgers' (2011 - )
Sure, "Bob's Burgers" is an animated show, and though it might not be your first thought for girls' night, don't knock it until you try it. The show is consistently hilarious, and the voice actors' lines will have you and your ladies LOL-ing IRL all the time. The malfunctioning dynamic of this family comedy promises to keep you laughing, whether it's Kristen Schaal's scheming Louise, Dan Mintz's always relatable, boy-obsessed Tina, or to Eugene Mirman's Gene.
'Parks and Recreation' (2009 - 2015)
Ovaries before brovaries, as Leslie Knope always says. Even if you and your gal-pals have watched every season of "Parks and Recreation," you will still laugh every time Chris Pratt's Andy Dwyer does something stupid or Nick Offerman's Ron Swanson goes on about being a manly man -- this comedy never gets old. Not to mention, the show has been Amy Poehler's best role so far, gave the world the slogan "Treat Yo' Self" thanks to Retta and Aziz Ansari, and shows off Aubrey Plaza's weird personality in the best way ever. This show is the best way to celebrate Galentine's Day, or any regular old girls' night.
'Inside Amy Schumer' (2013 - )
How could anyone put together a list of comedy shows to watch during girls' night without including the raucously entertaining "Inside Amy Schumer." They can't and they won't because Amy Schumer is amazing. The fiercely feminist show highlights teaching guys to emotionally fight like a girl and pretending to tell girls they don't need to wear makeup. You and your ladies will say 'that's so me' all night long.
