The League of Extraordinarily Funny Women
Un libro ilustrado que homenajea a las (probablemente) 50 cómicas más importantes e influyentes de la historia
An illustrated, timely examination that celebrates fifty of the most groundbreaking women in comedy who used their gift of humor to shake up the status quo and change perceptions of gender and comedy forever.
Step aside, Seinfeld. It's time for the brave, hilarious women of comedy to finally get the recognition they deserve. The people who say women aren't funny are actually saying something else: that humor in the hands of women is radical and scary. Nevertheless, women have persisted for generations now, deploying their wit in game-changing ways. The League of Extraordinarily Funny Women showcases fifty women -- past and present -- who used humor to deliver cutting social commentary, tangle with sensitive subjects, challenge traditional ideas about femininity, and above all, do anything but sit still and stay quiet when laughs are on the line.
