53+ More Female Comedians Who Deserve Serious Love
I'd like to add a few more onto the list HuffPo started, just to dole some more credit while it's still International Women's Day. I've been performing comedy in NYC for almost 10 years, and I just met a lot of good female comedians. I know I'm forgetting a lot of people, too.
A comedy industry person said to me within the last 30 days, that "Festivals would love to use females, but it's just that there are no women doing comedy". (Please don't get mad at me for writing that if you are reading this, but now I must mock you anonymously :). Consider us even!)
So it feels good to see lists like the one on HuffPo and to write them, too. There truly are a shit load of us. Ok, so many of these women are more known for their music comedy or characters or improvisation, and some are dead or have quit, but they are all (or were) damn funny, internet space is free, and they've all inspired me and /or made me laugh. If you see someone who isn't on here, add them in the comments, and / or make your own list.
