Women In Comedy

Season 2, Episode 1 of 6

Track the rise of women in the world of comedy, from the "dangerous" comedy of 70s sitcoms like "Maude" to the groundbreaking women of the 1980s American comedy club boom to today's multifaceted landscape. Today, movies like Bridesmaids break box office records and the women of "Saturday Night Live" are often more famous than their male counterparts. Contemporary comics, including Chelsea Handler, Mo'Nique, Sarah Silverman, Lily Tomlin, Carol Burnett, Ellen DeGeneres, Jane Lynch and Kathy Griffin, talk about where women started in this competitive, male-dominated profession and where they are determined to go.
