‘Women Aren’t Funny’ Trailer: Do Women Have A Place In Comedy?

Hold on, internet. Before you go reaching for pitchforks, torches, and whatever DDOS attacks you may plan against people who hate women online, please know that the headline above does not reflect our views in any way. Sometimes in order to create a great film you need to ask tough questions, and if those questions make you uncomfortable in any way then the filmmakers are probably on to something great.

Bonnie McFarlane and Rich Vos have released the first trailer for their new documentary, Women Aren’t Funny. The film, which is available for pre-order on iTunes, chases down the myth that women don’t belong in comedy. Along the way, there are interviews with some seriously funny women, including Amy Schumer, Sarah Silverman, Wanda Sykes, Rosie O’Donnell, Susie Essman, Judy Gold, Maria Bamford, Chelsea Peretti, Joy Behar, Lisa Lampanelli, and Joan Rivers. Male comics also weigh in on the topic with their own strong points of view including Chris Rock, Adam Carolla, Artie Lange, Tom Arnold, Robert Kelly, Colin Quinn, Jim Norton, Dane Cook, and the late Patrice O’Neal. You can view the trailer below:

Women Aren’t Funny hits VOD on August 26.
