On today's show we talk to Yael Kohen, a contributing
editor to Marie Claire and author of the book We Killed: The
Rise of Women in American Comedy. Starting with Phyllis
Diller, Elaine May and Joan Rivers, We Killed goes back
through the last 60 years of comedy history and restores the
forgotten and minimized stories of women in comedy.
A few weeks ago, Yael came over to the Manhattan Wrestling Team apartment to discuss her book, as well as some larger questions dealing with gender and comedy. Also, marvel at Mark and Andy's pure male privilege-induced stupidity!
