Join us for this nostalgic screening of Andrea Meyerson's first film, the award-winning documentary-comedy, LAUGHING MATTERS.
Kate Clinton, Marga Gomez, Karen Williams, and Suzanne Westenhoefer pioneered lesbian stand-up comedy. Playing small clubs in th 1980s and early '90s, they used the realities of being lesbian to challenge and charm audiences—all while hitting viewers where where it counts—in the funny bone.
LAUGHING MATTERS alternates between interviews with the four comedians and their live stand-up performances. Each comedian has her own unique look and style as well as stories of what it was like to be "out" onstage long before it was chic.
"An uproarious, comic celebration of lesbian America and its pre-eminent comediennes." —Curve Magazine
