Since 2006, I’ve taught over two thousand women how to do stand up comedy, but… PFW hasn’t always been a school. In the late 90s, it started out as the hottest showcase in Hollywood for up and coming comedians. I booked comics who I believed were going to be stars, before they were famous and when they were just a couple years into stand up. The show was called “Pretty, Funny Women” and it ran at the Hollywood Improv for over ten years. Some of the regular comics I had on my shows were Sheri Shepherd, Chelsea Handler, Tig Notaro, Retta, Natasha Leggero, Maria Bamford, Sarah Tiana, Vicki Barbolak, and Heather McDonald. I even booked Tiffany Haddish and Iliza at one point in my career. There were many nights where comics like Sarah Silverman, Margaret Cho and Kathleen Madigan dropped in. Often times, I would have three or four of those women on the same bill. The shows were always packed and the industry came down to scout new talent. Many of the comics featured on PFW booked jobs and got representation from being seen on my show.
