MAKERS is a six-part PBS series profiling the impact women have had over the past 50 years in six industries—comedy, politics, space, war, business, and Hollywood. A landmark broadcast and digital-video initiative developed by AOL, MAKERS aims to be the largest and most dynamic collection of women’s stories ever assembled.
Women in Comedy tracks the rise of women in the world of comedy, from the “dangerous” comedy of 70s sitcoms like Maude to the groundbreaking women of the 1980s American comedy club boom and building to today’s multifaceted landscape. Contemporary comics talk about where women started in this competitive, male-dominated profession and where they are determined to go.
