This feature-length documentary takes an uncensored look into the lives of female stand-up comedians. Funny Women includes interviews with some of the most prominent female voices in comedy and entertainment, enriched by live performance footage from female comedians working today. Funny Women sheds light on the legacy of the female comedian and the dedication, courage, and passion required to be successful in a male-dominated stand-up comedy business. These women have broken the mold and created a new and more inclusive landscape that expands beyond the comedy club stage.
