Women in Comedy

Amy Schumer - 2014 Peabody Award Acceptance Speech

The comedy world has always been predominately male, but now female comedic voices are getting a more fair share of the spotlight.  Amy Schumer became the first female comic to sell out Madison Square Garden this summer. Despite increased exposure, women in comedy still face an uphill battle against sexist norms. 



Columbus Unscripted is hosting the 5th annual Columbus Improv Festival.  The festival starts on the 18th of October and goes till the 24th.

Sassy Do Improv, the largest female improv group in Columbus have shows the second Thursday of each month at Wild Goose Creative.
