The League of Extraordinarily Funny Women: 50 Trailblazers of Comedy
Coming April, 2019
Meet the hilarious ladies of The League of Extraordinarily Funny Women: 50 Trailblazers of Comedy! (Running Press, a division of Hachette Publishing Group)
This book comes from my long-standing passion for comedy and a desire to shine a bigger light on the fabulous, funny, fearless women who have used humor to change the world for more than a century. The League is a beautifully illustrated gift book of women you likely know–Lucille Ball, Gilda Radner, Joan Rivers–and many who, I hope, you’ll meet and grow to love–Maria Bamford, Cameron Esposito, Lena Waithe.
These profiles tell the stories of innovative women who bucked the odds and defied conventions to make comedy their way. In the process, they inspired future generations of funny women, disrupted social, political, and gender norms, and essentially altered the course of women’s history forever with no signs of stopping–you know, no big deal.
