This annual celebration features a diverse line-up of nationally and locally known funny female comedians... African American, Latina, Jewish, lesbian, straight, short, tall, and drag queens. Funny Girlz was born in 1999 when stand-up comic/comedy producer, Lisa Geduldig, started taking inventory of stage time being given to women at mainstream comedy clubs. Even in 2007 it is still minimal, though there is certainly no shortage of funny female comics on the circuit. 50 weeks out of the year the line up at the SF mainstream comedy club consists of 3 male comics. There are 2-3 women who get booked at the clubs EACH year during those remaining two weeks. Thus, Funny Girlz was created.
