Exactly! Hilarious…and true. This awesome video parody that People magazine released on gender inequality and sexism within the acting industry, instantly transported me back to a conversation I had with my bestie, who just so happens to be a improv comedian. We had just finished watching the latest all female ghostbusters cast, and recognised the refreshing absence of the typically annoying female lines, roles, banter and jokes. No, there were none of the usual references to being blond, chubby, fat, the comparisons on looks, brainy vs beauty, funny and ugly…etc. None of that. These women were just being ghost busting superheros. After having prepared herself to cry tears of joy for the full length of it, we happily gushed about how frikkin’ amazingly awesome it was to finally have an all female cast in a superhero action movie with no male figure to answer to. Yes we can.
Women have to build ridiculous amounts of confidence to breakthrough layers of external perception on what it means to be a funny woman. I’ve watched in awe as my friend has grown, explored her identity, and boundaries, within the improv and comedy world. And I am so happy it’s changing! So that she can stand alongside a growing number of hilariously entertaining and funny women out there breaking the ‘rules’. Setting up the foundation of a new paradigm, for the next generation of funny women.
ENJOY THE VID 😉
