Girl Code Comes To Greenville As A Part Of The 7:07 Series

Some of the cast of MTV’s TV show, Girl Code, will be coming to ECU tonight. The comedy show will begin at 7:07 p.m. at Hendrix Theatre. 

This event is the first of the new 7:07 series, hosted by the Student Activities Board, that is a compilation of premiere events on campus. Other events scheduled in the 7:07 series include Magician Mike Super, Ghost Hunter and Comedian Spank Horton to name a few.

The MTV series Girl Code features many comedians and their takes on every day situations that women come across in their lives. The show immediately received good reviews and became popular quickly after its start.

One episode talks about how girls act when they begin a new diet and their need to tell everyone about it. The cast then shared their experiences dieting and the annoyance of hearing about their friend’s diet plans.

“People don’t want to hear about your diet. Just shut up, eat your lettuce, and be sad,” said comedian Nicole Byer in that episode.

The cast consists of almost 20 comedians both male and female, such as, Jeff Dye, Carly Aquilino, Esther Ku, Chris DiStefano and Jamie Lee, to name a few.

The idea for this show wasn’t entirely new. Girl Code was a spin-off to the MTV2 series Guy Code that debuted in November of 2011.

According to their website, “MTV's new series ‘Girl Code’ is a strong and smart female driven comedy series bringing millennial viewers a new, hilarious how-to manual full of over the top tips to push the envelope and open the dialogue about the wonders and woes of womanhood.”

 

Although they do add humor to woman’s everyday situations, the comedians have addressed issues for woman today that are a little more serious. One of these issues being how young women view themselves do to the culture of media today and it’s high standards for our generation.

“You will never look like the girl in the magazine. The girl in the magazine doesn’t look like the girl in the magazine,” said comedian Jessimae Peluso about the commonality of photoshop used on models in magazines.

Girl Code is relatively new and started in April of 2013. Since then two seasons have aired and in April of this year MTV announced that they will be renewing the series for a third season.

Only some of the cast will be attending the event tonight and they are only here for the night. In order to get access the comedy show tonight in Hendrix students must bring their school ID.
