ABOUT THE SHOW
Stand-up comedy had always been a male domain. Only a tiny handful of women have broken out of the brutal world of comedy clubs to become household names. After decades of fighting for a place in the spotlight, things have finally shifted. Hysterical, a feature documentary from director Andrea Nevins (Tiny Shoulders: Rethinking Barbie), journeys backstage and on the road with veteran comedians, rising stars, and novices to discover how an intrepid group of boundary-breaking females are changing the game and exploring what it takes to become the voices of their generation and their gender.
Candlelight Comedy Club is usually the third Thursday of the month. All dates are listed below, those bolded and underlined are not 3rd Thursdays.
Upcoming dates: July 15, August 19, September 23, October 21, November 11
