X428: Funny GIRLS: Lena Dunham and beyond in Splash Spring 13 (Apr. 06, 2013)
In "Bossypants," Tina Fey writes: "Only in comedy, by the way, does an obedient white girl from the suburbs count as diversity." Luckily, that diversity has been growing. Tina Fey was one of the first women to create, write, and star in her own TV show, paving the way for Mindy Kahling ("The Mindy Project") and Lena Dunham ("Girls"). We'll talk a little bit about the complicated history of women in comedy, but mostly we'll talk about why the women we know and love are so funny.
