FUNNY WOMEN: HUMOR AND THE X CHROMOSOME
Did you ever notice that men laugh at the Three Stooges more than women? Or that mrn say they want a woman with a sense of humor, but what they're really saying is that they want a woman who will laugh at their jokes? Preferably while her boobs are jiggling. Is there women’s humor? And what about all those women who make a living (or try to) of pointing out the laughable moments in all our lives? Is the business of humor funny? And is it different for the guys and the gals?
Veteran comedians Peggy Platt and Kristen Kirkham dish about their careers, the challenges for women in the business of being funny, and what makes us laugh.
Peggy Platt, the “Reigning Queen of Seattle Comedy,” has plied her trade as a noted performer, comedian, teacher, and artist in the Pacific Northwest. She is a winner of the Seattle Comedy Competition, a prolific author of full-length plays, and has toured with her stage shows all over the world, not to mention exotic locals like Indianapolis.
Kristen Kirkham started her comedy career working with Robin William's improv group in San Francisco, where the already recognized Williams, an accomplished comedy star, would often drop by unexpectedly to perform. She has performed varied comedy in numerous venues all over the world, but settled in Seattle to round out her career doing standup.
