We Killed: The Rise of Women in American Comedy - Yael Kohen

Imagine going to a cocktail party where you could meet and listen to every generation of ground-breaking and hilarious female in comedy from the last sixty years. Sadly, you can’t. But don’t despair! Instead, read We Killed: a VERY Oral History of Women in Comedy in which everyone from Joan Rivers, Lily Tomlin, Roseanne Barer, Paula Poundstone, Jeanene Garofalo, and Tiny Fey weigh in. Author Yael Kohen keeps the narrative flowing while giving everyone their moment to shine. We Killed is an honest, critical, hilarious, and contradictory tome (like all the best oral histories) that celebrates what these women accomplished. If you still don't think women are funny you just aren't paying attention.
