Created by Carole Montgomery, Funny Women Of A Certain Age as seen on Showtime® is a show straight from the unfettered mouths and uninhibited minds of the funniest, most daring, most experienced people in comedy: the women that have seen it all.
They’ve raised children both on and off the road with big hairy club bouncers cradling their babies while onstage. These women have stayed in comedy condos where you don’t want to use a blacklight on anything. They’ve been told women aren’t funny and asked to trade sexual favors for work.
Trust us, they have A LOT to say, and they say it hysterically.
Funny Women of a Certain Age (FWOACA) recently shot a TV special for the Showtime® Network that featured Fran Drescher, Carole Montgomery, Luenell, Lynne Koplitz, Vanessa Hollingshead and Kerri Louise. The special aired March 23rd to rave reviews.
Currently FWOACA has a monthly residency in NYC at the Kraine Theatre on the lower east side. Some of the past performers include Janeane Garofalo, Nikki Carr, Tammy Pescatelli, Lisa Ann Walter, Judy Gold, Julia Scotti, Sherry Davey, Wendy Liebman, Vanessa Hollingshead, Felicia Michaels, and Leighann Lord.
FWOACA premiered in September 2017 at the Cinder Block Comedy festival AND was a featured show in the 2018 New York Comedy Festival.
The show has since played to sold out crowds around the country.
