Funny Women of a Certain Age Premiering March 23rd on the Showtime Network Created by Carole Montgomery Funny Women of a Certain Age is a show straight from the unfettered mouths and uninhibited minds of the funniest, most daring, most experienced people in comedy: the women that have seen it all. They’ve raised children both on and off the road, having club bouncers watch their babies while onstage. These women have stayed in comedy condos where you don’t want to use a blacklight on anything. They’ve been told women aren’t funny and asked to trade sexual favors for work. This groundbreaking TV special makes history by featuring 6 female comics over the age of 50.Trust us, they have A LOT to say & they say it hysterically. These women are knocking down the walls of ageism AND sexism one joke at a time. Filmed at the Bell House in Brooklyn, Fran Drescher leads a cast of some of the best mature, female comics in the business. Featuring Carole Montgomery, Vanessa Hollingshead, Kerri Louise, Lynne Koplitz and Luenell. Each are women who have years of experience making people laugh. In this one hour television event, Carole comes home to Brooklyn and back to Showtime where she made her first network television appearance on Comedy Club All Stars 6.
