On the June 19th show, Adamant Eve sat down with three comedians to talk about the industry and opportunities for women in the stand up scene. Champagne hosted the round table with Edmonton comedian, Celeste Lampa (@), Toronto comic Adrienne Fish (@) and host of Edmonton’s Empress Comedy Night, Clare Belford (@ & @), and they covered everything from feminist and progressive material to something Celeste refers to as her “rice vag”.
