Yael Kohen traces the evolution of women in comedy from Joan Rivers on The Tonight Show to Joan Rivers upstaging Donald Trump on Celebrity Apprentice; from Marlo Thomas’s kooky That Girl to Zooey Deschanel’s adorkable manic pixie dream girl on The New Girl; from the writers’ room at The Mary Tyler Moore Show to the writers’ room at Saturday Night Live (the early years and the Fey years); and from LA’s Comedy Store to the Upright Citizen Brigade and the YouTube sketch comedy boom.
YAEL KOHEN is a reporter and editor in New York City. A contributing editor at Marie Claire, she covers books, pop culture, and issues important to working women. She has written for New York Magazine, Salon, The Daily Beast, New York Daily News, and The New York Sun.
This event is sponsored by the Weinstein JCC and the Jewish Community Federation of Richmond.
