Where’s The Funny?


A couple years ago, some writer (a guy) wrote a provocative article titled “Why Women Aren’t Funny.” Are women less funny than men? You might be surprised at how much you’ve laughed and enjoyed so much comedy by women – and many of them from our own area. But there’s more to comedy than meets the eye. On this week’s show we’ll be talking with comedian Theresa Hummel Krallinger about women and comedy, including Theresa’s own journey into standup. If you’ve been to the 2012 or 2013 Girlfriend Gala, you already know how funny Theresa is. Now you can hear how she got that way.

Think you’re funny? Think that comedy is part of your life reinvention? You’ll want to listen to Theresa’s take on the special challenges women in comedy face. She is my guest for the October 4, 2013 episode of Happy Hour on the Radio. (Listen to the show!)
