HOLLYWOOD HISTORY OF WOMEN IN COMEDY

Comedy crosses boundaries, and during the 1950’s, 60’s and 70’s, many female entertainers struggled just to enter the male-dominated world of stand-up and television.  While many comedians, today, get their laughs from shock value, the first female stars of network television had no such fallbacks, and instead, entertained with pure talent and screen savvy.  Listen to Steve Schneickert’s Big Blend Radio segment, as he recalls the Funny Ladies in Hollywood History including Betty White, Phyllis Diller, Joan Rivers, Lucille Ball, Carol Burnett, Mary Tyler Moore, Carol Channing and Bette Midler!
