Stand-up comedy has always been a male-dominated profession. After all, comics were originally called “wise guys.” After decades, women are finally breaking the mold and the stereotypes surrounding these spaces, which is documented in Hysterical.
This new series will showcase some of the funniest women in stand-up, offering viewers a backstage look into this cutthroat world of comics. In the post-MeToo era, Hysterical takes a deep dive into groundbreaking female stand-up comedians and the challenges they face. Newcomers and stars will tell first-hand accounts about their struggles in the industry, personal stories, and even lay out hilariously hot takes.
Household names including Kelly Bachman, Margaret Cho, Fortune Feimster, Rachel Feinstein, Marina Franklin, Nikki Glaser, Judy Gold, Kathy Griffin, Jessica Kirson, Lisa Lampanelli, Wendy Liebman, Carmen Lynch, Bonnie McFarlane, Sherri Shepherd and Iliza Shlesinger will be featured. Plus, there’s plenty of soon to be legends who audiences can get a peak at before the break big.
