ABOUT FWOACA: “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 created 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 2020 to huge viewership and the third special premiered in November 2021. All three specials prove that indeed #funnynevergetsold
