Sadly, a debate still rages over whether or not women are funny, and Bostonist still thinks a bunch of female comedians got robbed at the Boston Comedy Festival. This documentary, produced by Brookline's Jewish Women's Archive, should settle the argument with profiles of six Jewish performers--Sophie Tucker, Molly Picon, Fanny Brice, Joan Rivers, Wendy Wasserstein, and Gilda Radner. You think women aren't funny? Hello? Gilda? The Making Trouble screening will also include a performance by Cory Kahaney from Last Comic Standing.
