Broadly Speaking - 100 Years of Wisdom from Women in Comedy

Author(s): Barbara Darko

Gift Books

Broadly Speaking offers diverse perspectives on comedy with quotes from the world's greatest female comics and entertainers. As varied as the comedians themselves, witty one-liners, intimate anecdotes, and honest accounts tell the story of dismantling the boys' club and redefining what a woman in comedy can look, act, and sound like. Covering one hundred years of women in comedy, Broadly Speaking showcases original legends Dorothy Parker and Moms Mabley, who share the page with current influential figures Tina Fey and Ilana Glazer, alongside the emerging generation of funny women, including Awkwafina and Patti Harrison. Chuckle, laugh, and muse over these insights into the internal and external challenges of becoming a comedian and the way the industry and game have changed.
