Storyline

Four women who are lesbian comedians perform and, offstage, talk about their lives: parents and childhood, coming out, becoming comics, the arc of their careers, and its rewards. Marga Gómez is Cuban-Puerto Rican, from New York City. She mines cultural differences, her hobby horse, and National Coming Out Day. Kate Clinton, lapsed Catholic, gets laughs there and from the comedy of the sex act. Karen Williams, African-American from Berkeley, talks about aging and about the need to tell her story. Suzanne Westenhoefer inherits her grandfather's humor, and she jokes about Martha Stewart and airport security. Each is serious about the power of humor to reveal what's at her core.

Pretty Funny Women
27 December 2005 | by (Hollywood, CA.) – See all my reviews

These women are funny. The sixty minute documentary (a first for director Andrea Meyerson) gives us hilarious performance footage blended with behind-the-scenes interviews with comedians Kate Clinton, Karen Williams, Marga Gomez and Suzanne Westenhoefer. They talk about everything from politics, girlfriends, ex-girlfriends, religion, Christmas presents, first jobs, aging, Martha Stewart and of course sex. Laughing Matters will remind everyone why it is so important to laugh and so important to be who you are. Stand-up is best served live with a couple a beers and the energy of the audience laughter but the intelligent and humorous interviews with these four women made it worth the watch. 8 out of 10 stars.
