See Jane Salon – Funny Ladies: Serious Business

March 16, 2015
The District by Hannah An

TV and film has unleashed a new generation of comediennes who act, perform stand-up, write, and direct – yet, despite representing half the population, females are still sidelined in comedy series – with only 31.5% of characters being girls and women. This is still one of the most imbalanced genres in prime time. Comedy has changed on sitcoms, in clubs, and on Saturday Night Live. The repertoire of women isn’t limited to self-loathing or man-hating anymore; the humor is more eclectic, serene, and organic. As comedy has opened up, women who once might not have dared write comedy, or writers who hadn’t considered performing, have been emboldened to become writers and get onstage, Our See Jane salon will convene a panel of comedians, actors and content creators to share their experience in the business and offer insight and best practices into their own creative process.
