Women are still underrepresented in the comedy world, but star comedians like Amy Schumer, Sarah Silverman and Kristen Wiig prove that females are a force to be reckoned with. This weekend, the She-Devil Comedy Festival (Oct. 21-24) celebrates women’s role in comedy with a contest of 60 female comics. They’ll perform at venues around New York City, including Broadway Comedy Club and the Greenwich Village Comedy Club, competing to see who garners the most laughs during two four-minute sets in the first round. Only 24 of those contestants will move on to the quarter-finals, followed by 12 to the semi-finals. Six performers will be invited to the finals, where each will perform a 10-minute set to determine who takes the She-Devil Comedy Festival crown. No matter which performance you attend, you’ll be exposed to hilarious women who we predict may find their way onto top comedy shows like Saturday Night Live.
