The 1st Annual Chicago Women's Funny Festival  |  June 6th - 10th 2012
The Chicago Women's Funny Festival gathers writers, performers, and comedy lovers together to create and celebrate in the comedy capital of the world.

From the Executive Producer Jill Valentine:

I am so honored to have this many amazingly talented ladies under one roof this week. The response to this festival was overwhelming and all of us were amazed at the number of applications. I, like so many of you, have been doing this for a long time.

We are all a part of the weird funny girl club.
The class clown in a dress. Funnier than your uncle at the family table. Making friends with facial expression and punch lines. You bring the ridiculous realism to the feminine mystique.
Not only am I honored, I am empowered that I am standing next to hundreds of us's.

Let's do this bitches.
