Secrets from secret lady comedy Facebook groups

You may have heard or read about secret Facebook groups for women in comedy over the past couple of years, as women have taken back the initiative to not let men and predators get away with sexual misconduct inside or outside of comedy venues.

In the second episode of her series, “Woman Online” for Seriously.TV, Sara Schaefer (MTV’s Sara and Nikki Live) sat down with several other women in comedy to describe the need for such private Facebook groups. Selena Coppock and Katie Compa started one in New York City in 2011. Also here to talk about what’s what: Madison Shepard, Riley Silverman, Klee Wiggins, and Ceda Xiong.

Episode One of “Woman Online” featured guest Jen Kirkman on the nature of online harassment and outrage.

New episodes will come out weekly.
