Join the Female Hysterics

Lauren Langer ’16 writes in:

I don’t care that you don’t think you’re funny. I don’t care that you don’t “do comedy”. You ARE, and you DO, now.

The Female Hysterics is an all-female comedy collective. There are no auditions. There are no limits. We will meet twice a week to joke around without shame or embarrassment. We will do stand up, we will write sketches, we will laugh, and we will most importantly, create a safe space for any female-identifying student to try comedy or fail spectacularly.
