Jana and Lisa have a discussion about being women in comedy, in a very toxically male environment. Has the landscape changed as more women get involved in comedy? Lisa argues that women are still very marginalized in comedy clubs and in the comedy scene. She gives examples of ways that men have fully blown in when she’s been in their hosted shows and it is infuriating. The two women both have had men as comedy icons throughout their formative years but don’t get the same kind of respect from men. Lisa’s career goals are to work in comedy and to write comedy.
Lisa’s One Cool Thing is an Instagram account called @kookslams which is an account where people in the ocean get taken down by waves. Jana’s One Cool Thing is also an Instagram account called @miss.whizz where women squat bare-assed and piss in public places.
If you want to see Lisa perform, you can find her every Sunday night in LA at The Chatterbox. Check out her podcast, What’s Your Sign and check out lisachanoux.com!
