Created by sketch comedy group, Cake Batter, comprised of Lauren Frost, Angela Rysk, and Erin Miller Williams, Funny Women Festival, or FWF, was created to celebrate women in comedy and to promote community and opportunity for females in the industry. FWF was also supported by some of comedy’s biggest names including WifeyTV, Funny or Die, and Buzzfeed.
“Our goal is to provide a setting for women in comedy to not only perform, but to get to know each other and inspire each other through their work.” says co-producer Lauren Frost.
“Yea, it’s pretty simple.” continues Erin Miller Williams “There’s a lot of talented women in this city and we want to throw a big old party to celebrate them.”
James Grace, general manager at iO West adds, “We are proud to support the surge of women in comedy and provide the stage to showcase women that will frame the new face of this art form.”
A portion of all proceeds will be donated to Funny Women Festival’s beneficiary, the Downtown Women’s Center located in Los Angeles.
