Our sister organization, Black Sheep Comedy, published a series of personal essays written by women who chose to get into comedy in their 40’s, 50’s, 60’s and 70’s. What held them back in their earlier years? Was there a defining catalyst that finally brought them to the stage (or dive bar or open mic or comedy class)? Do they have any regrets? After all, the world of comedy can be harsh, especially for those who may not fit a certain mold. Follow the links below to learn their personal stories and motivators. Perhaps they may even provide a little personal motivation and inspiration for you, dear reader!
