"If I had to choose between ageism or sexism, I'd take a pat on the behind any day, since that meant someone noticed me.”
Carole Montgomery creator of Funny Women of A Certain Age
Funny Women (WOACA) was created to give older women comics a chance to be seen and heard. Frustrated with how women are portrayed on television once they hit 50, Carole decided to do something about it. She’s fighting ageism AND sexism one joke at a time. The women who appear in WOACA are all funny, vibrant and brilliant. They just happen to be of a certain age. These women paved the way for the female comics you see today.
The first TV special for the Showtime Network featured Fran Drescher, Carole Montgomery, Luenell, Lynne Koplitz, Vanessa Hollingshead and Kerri Louise. It premiered March 23, 2019, and made TV history as the first comedy special to feature 6 women over the age of 50.
