Thank you WIFT!
Big thank you to everyone who came out last night to watch the Women In Film and Television panel discussion on Women In Comedy. I had a great time chatting on stage with Sarah Hillier, Catherine McCormick, and Erin Rodgers, with the fabulous moderating job done by WIFT’s own Jocelyn Geddie.
Apparantly this was the highest-attended panel that WIFT has held as part of this series in two years, so we were all very excited to see women take such an interest in the comedy industry. We hope we didn’t talk too many of you out of it.
The time flew by, and we all agreed that we could have pontificated into the wee hours. Anyone who wants to discuss any of the points further, please feel free to comment here and we’ll keep ‘er going.
