Women in Comedy

Standard
Comedy_Round Table

Comedy Roundtable with stand-up comedians Adrienne Fish, Clare Belford and Celeste Lampa, with a special appearance by Penis and Boob gummies.

 

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 (@CelesteLampa), Toronto comic Adrienne Fish (@adrienne_fish) and host of Edmonton’s Empress Comedy Night, Clare Belford (@clarebelford & @empresscomedy), and they covered everything from feminist and progressive material to something Celeste refers to as her “rice vag”. These women are hilarious and are sure to blow up the Canadian comedy scene.

Listen to the show:

 

Clare and Adrienne mention on the show how they were part of Toronto’s SheDot Comedy Festival earlier this year, so if you’re interested in learning more or getting involved, follow them on Twitter or on Facebook.

 

On the show we also mentioned the “She’s So Funny” documentary that Adrienne is in, and it provides some interesting insights on gender and comedy:
