9 Jokes From Feminist Comedians From Last Week, Because WE REALLY NEED THEM RIGHT NOW

by Liz Magee

Here’s some Twitter jokes that I have collected and arranged just for you in order to help get you through the rest of your work shift.

If you’re looking to see some live comedy while simultaneously supporting the ACLU, look to see if your city is participating in the What A Joke Comedy Festival! Two comedians from the NYC stand-up scene (Emily Winter and Jenn Welch) have put together a nationwide festival with stellar lineups all around the country. “In response to our President-elect’s repeated threats on our human rights, comedians in over 30 cities are coordinating shows to raise money for the ACLU on Inauguration Day Weekend,” as their website describes. I’m proud to know these women.

Anywho, back to our regularly scheduled round-up…

Christi Chiello is one of the best in the business. No voice is as distinctly unique and interesting as hers. This goes for both her voice as an artist and her literal, actual voice.
