“If I had to choose between ageism or sexism, I’d take a pat on the behind any day, since that meant someone noticed me.”

Carole Montgomery creator of Funny Women of A Certain Age What began as a way to work with her friends has exploded on the comedy scene. When Carole (a veteran of the stand up scene for over 40 years) started, you would never see two female comics on the same show. Fast forward to today’s comedy scene and nothing has changed, even though there are way more women in comedy. Funny Women or WOACA was created to give older women comics a chance to be seen and heard. Frustrated with how women are portrayed on television once they hit 50, Carole decided to do something about it. She’s fighting ageism AND sexism one joke at a time. The women who appear in WOACA are all funny, vibrant and brilliant, they just happen to be of a certain age. These women paved the way for the female comics you see today. The first TV special for the Showtime Network featured Fran Drescher, Carole Montgomery, Luenell, Lynne Koplitz, Vanessa Hollingshead and Kerri Louise. The special premiered March 23rd, 2019 and it made TV history as the first comedy special to feature 6 women over the age of 50.

In fact the special was the network’s highest rated premiere of a stand up show for 2019! The second Showtime special More Funny Women Of A Certain Age premiered March 14, 2020 to huge viewership. It stars another round of comedy greats. Caroline Rhea, Carol Leifer, Tammy Pescatelli, Julia Scotti and Thea Vidale.

The third special was taped in Los Angeles at the Irvine Improv during a global pandemic and premiered November 24th 2021. It features Teri Hatcher, Marsha Warfield, Wendy Liebman, Monique Marvez and Leighann Lord. All three specials prove that indeed #funnynevergetsold The specials are produced by Killer Bunny Entertainment. Executive producers are Carole Montgomery, Dave Goldberg and Rob Cea. Carole was featured in The Interrobang online magazine as one of the Top 10 Innovators in Comedy for 2019. Currently WOACA has a monthly residency in NYC at the Kraine Theatre going on its fifth year. WOACA was a featured show in the NY COMEDY FESTIVAL and was recently featured on the Today Show with Hoda & Jenna.
