When this world, this country we live in is going bat shit crazy, and it’s always going bat shit crazy, laughter is always the best medicine to balance it all out. It’s easy to throw on a TV show for comedic relief, but more and more people are getting their asses off the couch and making it down to their local comedy club. A good thing.

The conversation on the bias and inequality in the entertainment industry has been going on for some time now. In 2015, the movement behind raising the bar for women in film and entertainment has thankfully stretched beyond idol mentions and has consistently boiled up into action beyond words.
