If you’re down for a good chuckle, the Detroit Women of Comedy Festival is happening this weekend at Planet Ant Theatre and The Independent Comedy Club in Hamtramck. The mission of the Detroit Women of Comedy Festival is to use comedy to amplify the voices of marginalized voices. The festival will feature a variety of acts across the spectrum of comedic stylings including improv, sketch, and stand-up. There will also be a live podcast recording of the Dead Waves podcast on Saturday. Marcella Arguello, a California-based comedienne and host of the Women Crush weekly showcase at Hollywood’s Improv Lab, serves as the headliner for this year’s festival.
