Female Comics use Wit and Sass to Benefit The Humane Society
After much success with Underwire Comedy’s debut show last February, it is time prepare yourself for another night of laughter! The all-female comedy show is bucking the trend of sex and dating jokes in exchange for sharp wit that transcends to all genders. The event’s mission continues to be twofold: raise funds for a good cause and put today’s best female comics at the forefront of the comedy landscape.
In one of the most well established comedy clubs in the U.S., only 8% of headliners were women over 4 years.
Underwire Comedy is on a Crusade to Change That.
The time has come for a different type of female comedy. After a successful February premier show, Executive producer Stephany Burns is excited to announce the second comedy night for Underwire Comedy: Support the Funny! The event supports uniquely funny female comics while benefiting The Humane Society. The event will be held at 8:00pm on June 16, 2016 at the Westside Comedy Club in Santa Monica, CA.
There appears to be a shortage of female stand-up comedians today, and the ones currently in the spotlight seem to believe their only source of approval is centered around their sexuality or dating life. Inspired by a debate about this lack of creativity, Underwire Comedy was born. The goal is to promote up and coming female stand-up comedians that do not need to resort to the same predictable sexcapades
just to get a laugh. Underwire Comedy is hoping to help others discover the next Ellen, Whoopi or Tig. The night will be full of many hilarious ladies, with headliners Erin Foley (Comedy Central Presents) and Jodi Miller (America’s Got Talent).
The all-female producing team of Underwire Comedy also believes in giving back to the community. A portion of the proceeds will benefit The Humane Society, the nations largest and most effective animal protection organization.
Join us to raise women up in comedy and raise a little money for our furry friends too!
