Are Women Wanting To Become Comedians At A Disadvantage?

I found an interesting article about stand-up comedy and women with this headline: Is a workshop for women the way to break into the male-dominated world of stand-up comedy? It kind of hit me the wrong way because it appears to imply that women don’t have the same opportunities in stand-up comedy as men, which is 100% bogus. Here’s the real deal: If you go to ANY stand-up comedy open mic, you will find that the folks who try to get stage time there are mostly men, not women.
