It's true: Females are funny — and StandUp in Stilettos is about to prove it.
The new half-hour series from TV Guide Network, premiering Saturday at 10/9c, features three comediennes per show. And no, it's not just for females to watch. In fact, men will enjoy it just as much... if not more!

Maya Rudolph is returning to her old Saturday Night Live stomping grounds this week — but there's a slight problem: She still owes Fred Armisen $20 from 2007 and she's also got writers' block.
Once she gets over those hurdles, she'll have to deal with what's inside the time capsule she left behind.
