KAABOO’S WOMEN OF COMEDY OFFER SERIOUS LAUGHS
In a recent episode of Louis C.K.’s sitcom, “Louis”, a club owner tells him “don’t put two girls together” in the lineup for a comedy open mic night. Louis raises his eyebrows and ends up scheduling two women in a row anyway.
We applaud his reaction in that scene, because some incredibly funny women are creating some of the best comedy out there. We’d be thrilled to see them all together.
Marie Claire magazine issued a list of the “50 Funniest Women” and called them “all equally, ridiculously brilliant…reigning queens of comedy.” That list highlights hilarious women who grace screen and stage alike with their biting wit, comedic social commentary and even comedy-action mashups.
Last month, The Chicago Tribune ran a great piece debunking the ignorant question about whether women are as funny as men. Comedians from Tina Fey to Wanda Sykes delivered perfect responses that show just how inane the question is. Kristen Wiig said:
“If (people) would watch movies or look at comedy and see how many talented, funny women are out there and have been since the beginning of time, people would stop asking that.”
KAABOO is thrilled to be welcoming four brilliant women in comedy to our onsite comedy club, Humor Me, during our September 16-18 “mix-perience”:
