2016 Charm City Comedy Festival Women in Comedy Panel
AUDIO ONLY. ADULT LANGUAGE IS USED.
In an event which was the first of its kind in the area, a panel of experienced and illustrious women met for a discussion on Women in Comedy. The panel addressed sexual harassment in comedy, ways to create more supportive artistic environments for women, specific issues related to being an LGBTQ performer, specific issues related to being a woman of color in comedy, and what promoters and venues can do to be inclusive to women and meet their needs as performers. This was an audience talk back, which was primarily meant to serve as a platform for the expression of our community's women, but men were encouraged to come and listen, support, and give their perspectives.
Our esteemed panelists included:
- Kelly Garafola, Standup Comic, Licensed Therapist, Clinical Social Worker, Baltimore, MD
- Jessica Garrett, Standup Comic, Actor, and Founder of Single Carrot Theater, Baltimore, MD
- Katherine Jessup, Standup Comic, Podcast Host, and Actor, Washington, DC
- Rubi Nicholas, Standup Comic, Occupational Therapist, Professor, Lancaster, PA
- Chelsea Shorte, Standup Comic, Writer, Producer, Podcaster, and Drag King, Washington, DC.
Moderator: Megan Wills, Improv Performer/Instructor/Coach, Co-Founder, Festival Director, Charm City Comedy Project and Charm City Comedy Festival, Baltimore, MD.
