Summary
Everyone says the future is female, but that change is happening right now. Across the planet, women's voices are being heard like never before... Joanne Brookfield has spent two decades working in the world of comedy, as both a journalist and a stand-up comedian. Over coffee, wine, laughter and tears, she's talked with the women of comedy about every aspect of their lives, from the butterflies of their first gigs to the hell of their worst. From writing, gigging and touring, to the times they almost gave up, these women share the ways they've lived the feminist war cry of 'nevertheless, she persisted' and the triumphs they've enjoyed as a result. Representing a multitude of backgrounds, styles and content, the women in comedy cover the full spectrum of human experience and this book celebrates them all, from the trailblazers who paved the way to the talented new stars who are actively transforming the landscape of performance. A funny and feisty read, at its core No Apologies is about the power of women, their voices and their stories
