Synopsis by Hal Erickson
This content of this 60-minute video is implicit in its title. Long the bastion of male standup comics, the Comedy Store is also the breeding ground for some of America's brightest female laughmakers. Several are spotlighted herein, accompanied by an appreciative audience. The talent lineup includes Pam Matteson, Karen Haber, Tamayo Otsuki and Carrie Snow. The best-known of the performers is Shirley Hemphill, of What's Happening fame.
