Bad Assery: The Women and Comedy Conference
Bad Assery: The Women and Comedy Conference
You can see it in the existence of the term comedienne, a qualifier for a profession that we have been told is inherently male. Because of this "fact", women have allowed the art they create and the validity of their careers to be filtered through the male perspective. It's like trying to see yourself in the mirror while wearing someone else's glasses. It just doesn't work. We are changing the conversation from us vs. them to me vs. me.

Bad Assery: The Women and Comedy Conference will be kicking off this epic 3-day event at beautiful littlefield. Come drink, celebrate, learn, create and having a helluva good time.

Aparna Nancherla
Aparna Nancherla
Queen of that slightly cynical but innocent humor, Aparna Nancherla has been winning audiences everywhere she goes. You may have caught her on “Last Comic Standing”, The Bridgetown Comedy Festival, Aspen Rooftop or WTF podcast. Writer and player on W. Kamau Bell’s “Totally Biased” Aparna is sure to be soaking up the laughs. Look out for her on SF Sketchfest’s comedy lineup this year.
Sabrina Jalees
Sabrina Jalees
Sabrina Jalees is a comedian, actor, keynote speaker and writer based in New York City (Brooklyn.) Since stepping onto the stage of (Toronto’s) Yuk Yuk’s amateur night at 16, she’s become one of the most recognizable faces in the Canadian media. Lovers of comedy were immediately intrigued by the ½ -Pakistani, ½ -Swiss teen’s humor (…mostly because she was so damned clever (and admittedly, partially due to her moustache at the time).
She was soon skipping class to tour the country. Going on to record a CTV Comedy Now special, perform at the famed Just For Laughs Festival and break Mike Myers’ record as the youngest improviser ever hired by Second City. Between now and then she’s crossed over into acting (CBS’s Flashpoint, Lifetime’s Mom at Sixteen), hosts a Canadian reality series (YTV’s In Real Life) as well as a national radio show (CBC’s Laugh Out Loud) and is best known for her rapier wit as a fixture of the most popular show on Canada’s version of MTV (Much Music’s Video On Trial).
