"This is a dialogue-heavy series with hardly any action, not to mention that most of it takes place in a dressing room. So why would anyone turn a manga like this into an anime?"
Joshiraku is literally about five young female rakugo (hence, "Joshi" and "raku") performers who talk about random topics and make jokes with tons of Japanese puns involved. There is practically no continuous story.
Joshiraku is an anime series produced by J.C. Staff based off of a manga series of the same written name by Kouji Kumeta and illustrated by Yasu. The series is directed by Tsutomu Mizushima with series composition by Michiko Yokote, both of whom previously worked together on the Squid Girl anime series. Character designs handled by Masayoshi Tanaka, Yoshikazu Iwanami is in charge of sound direction, and Starchild Records is taking care of music production.
One notable thing about all the named characters is that their names form some sort of pun or reference in a mixture of Engrish and plain Japanese. The pun reflects their character and personality throughout the series.
