Detroit's Women of Comedy Festival

Cristina Orlando
It’s no secret that the late comedian and Saturday Night Live star John Belushi openly despised women comedians and, as recently as 2007, writer Christopher Hitchens penned an essay titled “Why Women Aren’t Funny” for Vanity Fair in which he claimed that there are “more terrible female comedians than there are terrible male comedians.” Well, we have some news for you, sir: Women-identifying comedians are funny. Really fucking funny, in fact. Giving ladies the last laugh is the second annual Detroit Women of Comedy Festival. The four-day festival will feature more than 50 acts across Planet Ant’s five stages ranging from solo stand-up comedians like Dani Schi, Katie Morrisey, Silvi Santoso, and Cristina Orlando, improv troupes including Patty & Patty, The Gay Agenda, and Golden Girls, in addition to workshops and live podcasts such as Reasons Why I’m Single and The Michael Duprey Variety Hour.
