HACKS is a sketch comedy show written and performed by real life best friends, Kimberly Florian (left) and Maeve Devitt (right), all about the experience of two women fighting to make a career out of being funny. HACKS has been described by producers of Out of Bounds Comedy Festival as “Garfunkel and Oates meets Broad City.”
In HACKS, Maeve and Kim play exaggerated versions of themselves navigating America’s tumultuous healthcare landscape, wondering whether Maeve is a secret sociopath, and trying to fill the hole created by the premature death of Kim’s father (by finding a new, sexier father to replace him). By exploiting their personal struggles, HACKS offers a unique, hilarious, multimedia experience that is relatable to any audience.
The women of HACKS comedy are more than just a pretty face and a great rack; they are also talented musicians and trained dancers. HACKS recently put on “HACKS: A Christmas Cabaret” at Chicago’s 19th Annual Sketch Comedy Festival, where they were shouted out as an up-and-coming “dynamic duo” by festival organizers. In past HACKS productions, Maeve and Kim have opted to sing and dance about themes such as dating, death, and America’s invasion of Iraq. They love keeping things light and flirty!
HACKS is a budding female comedic duo who have sold out shows in venues such as: Chicago’s Women’s Funny Fest, Chicago’s Sketch Comedy Festival, Chicago’s Annoyance Theater and Bar, Out of Bounds Comedy Festival in Austin, Texas and, of course, Chicago's comedy overlord: The Second City. Maeve and Kim are a magnetic force with unmatched chemistry on stage. They make every audience they meet think “wow, women CAN be funny. Guess I owe Jerry in HR fifty bucks.”
