In light of the announcement of Amy Schumer’s first Australian arena show set to kick off later this year in December, the internationally recognized comedian paves the way for a new generation of leading ladies hitting our funny bones in all the right places.
With two critically acclaimed stand-up specials, an extremely successful television series and a golden globe nominated feature film under her belt, the young gun is dominating the otherwise man’s world of comedy.
Following the likes of Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, a new group of fresh faces have hit the scene proving that the days of a male-dominated comedy world are well and truly over.
Fearless, fiery and damn funny, these ladies are making waves in the industry with no sign of slowing down.
Amy Schumer does away with the age-old ‘lady-like’, polite profile, giving all us gals the ay-okay to talk about whatever, however we want to. The relatable funny woman is everything we’ve been craving in a female comic and continues to give us reasons to love her.
Making her debut on the American adaptation of ‘The Office’, Mindy Kaling worked as the only female writer on a board of eight.
Later going on to write and star in her own series ‘The Mindy Project’, Kaling proved that she is much more than the airy fairy character she so flawlessly portrayed.
A master of the balance between intellectual comedy and light heartedness, Kaling challenges topics such as race and feminism with a unique twist all of her own.
Unapologetically controversial, Sarah Silverman has proved time and time again that she gives absolutely no f***’s, and we are loving it.
Always hilarious, always a little (or a lot) rude, Silverman works to unleash all of our inner thoughts that we were to ashamed to say out loud.
The eccentric funny woman is relatable, sarcastic, intelligent and cringe-worthy in the best possible way.
