Episode 5: Funny Girl

Anne and Goat address sexism in comedy, and what it’s like to be a funny girl in a “man’s world”. Covering comedians from Kate McKinnon to Amy Schumer, we target the struggles of women in movies, tv shows and stand-up, and why underrepresentation continues so fiercely in all realms. Amongst the many female comedians we praise, we focus on the talented Jessica Williams for her work on The Daily Show, her exceptional podcast Two Dope Queens, and why she is extra special in our hearts. We also examine our fellow Canadian, Samantha Bee, and her amazing show Full Frontal. As always, we leave you with a song-- this time from a favourite band called Savages.
