"Comedy often functions as comfort food, and it's good fun to see this collective - who in side interviews decry the idea of female comics being competitive with one another - railing against it all." ~NY Post
Featuring: Caroline Rhea, Julia Scotti, Carole Montgomery, and Thea Vidale
Created by Carole Montgomery, Funny Women Of A Certain Age as seen on Showtime® is a show straight from the unfettered mouths and uninhibited minds of the funniest, most daring, most experienced people in comedy: the women that have seen it all.
They've raised children both on and off the road with big hairy club bouncers cradling their babies while onstage. These women have stayed in comedy condos where you don't want to use a blacklight on anything. They've been told women aren't funny, and have been asked to trade sexual favors for work.
Trust us, they have A LOT to say, and they say it hysterically.
Funny Women of a Certain Age (FWOACA) recently shot a TV special for the Showtime® Network that featured Fran Drescher, Carole Montgomery, Luenell, Lynne Koplitz, Vanessa Hollingshead and Kerri Louise. The special aired March 23, 2019 to rave reviews.
Funny Women of a Certain Age returns to Showtime on March 14, 2020, at 10/9c with a second highly anticipated special starring Caroline Rhea, Carol Leifer, Tammy Pescatelli, Thea Vidale, Carole Montgomery, and Julia Scotti.
Currently FWOACA has a monthly residency in NYC at the Kraine Theatre on the lower east side. Some of the past performers include Janeane Garofalo, Nikki Carr, Tammy Pescatelli, Lisa Ann Walter, Judy Gold, Julia Scotti, Sherry Davey, Wendy Liebman, Vanessa Hollingshead, Felicia Michaels, and Leighann Lord.
FWOACA premiered in September 2017 at the Cinder Block Comedy festival AND was a featured show in the 2018 New York Comedy Festival.
The show has since played to sold out crowds around the country.
Funny Women of a Certain Age features a rotating cast of female headliners all over the age of 50.
"Through their individual sets, they break down walls of sexism, including the notion that women simply aren't funny, while earning rolling laughs along the way." ~UPROXX
