Wait, are people still saying women aren't funny? Internet trolls aside, fearless and hilarious women are trailblazing and transforming the way readers connect with digital content -- and that (obviously) includes humor. Women in the digital space are reaching huge audiences every day through their personal brands of humor, which range from painful to hilarious, and run the gamut (and blur the lines) between.
Jane Pratt, founder of Sassy and Jane magazines and now editor in chief of xoJane.com, has assembled a panel of brilliant, irreverent and hilarious women for this SXSW session. Join the industry’s game changers as they discuss what women actually find funny, how social media has empowered humor through shameless oversharing, and how they scour the internet for the best comedy material. Audience Q&A to follow.
