WEDNESDAY MARCH 24
COMEDY

There's a popular notion that women are not as funny as men. Out to annihilate that untruth is the second annual WOMEN IN COMEDY FESTIVAL, a five-day laugh smorgasbord of shows, workshops, and panels with this city's best female comics (and, yes, the occasional male), improv and sketch groups, filmmakers, and humor writers. The event's producers have opened up the line-up to the rest of the country, so this year, two Californians are headlining: the uproarious, possibly insane MARIA BAMFORD, a woman of a thousand voices who has starred on Comedy Central's "Comedians of Comedy" tour, and the more-together but no less funny (okay, maybe a little less funny) Los Angeles–based JACKIE KASHIAN. The festival invades two notorious laugh institutions: Mottley's Comedy Club, 61 Chatham St, Boston, and Improv Boston, 40 Prospect St, Cambridge | March 24-28 | womenincomedyfestival.com.
