Never enough funny ladies

Anyone watch the Golden Globes? I admit I’ve never watched them before, but I did this year mainly because of Tina Fey and Amy Poehler. Individually they crack me up. Together they are just hilarious.

As far as I’m concerned, more and more women in comedy makes for funnier and funnier comedy, though that flies in the face of the long held belief that women aren’t funny.

Say, what?!

In 2008, Alessandra Stanley wrote a fantastic piece for Vanity Fair, titled “Who Says Women Aren’t Funny?” in which Fey has the final words on the false belief (mostly by male comics) that women aren’t funny.

“You still hear it,” says Fey. “It’s just a lot easier to ignore.”

While I’m working on readying my novel, Counterfeit Cure, for publishing I’ll be posting links to some of the best articles I’ve come across. Stay tuned for more on Counterfeit Cure.
