How Mindy Kaling, Kristen Wiig, Aidy Bryant And Other Comedians Embrace Fashion And Use It To Their Advantage
There's something extra cool about women in comedy. Not only do they make us laugh, but they do so in an industry so male-dominated that people somehow still get surprised when each cracks a joke. They consistently shatter boundaries set in place against them, proving one laugh at a time that girls can play just as hard as the boys. Plus, more often than not, these women use being women to the their advantage, embracing unique personal styles to disprove any notion that comedy is something exclusively masculine.
Put more simply, these ladies work with what they've got. Forgetting any and all long-held, aggravatingly unjust social standards against women in comedy, the comedians of today help to shatter stereotypes in society at large.
First and foremost, these women disprove any misinformed notions that women can't be funny with brilliant and ground-breaking work, impressive not uniquely because they are women, but rather because, well, because to rack up such achievements is just plain impressive.
By embracing their penchant for fashion in various forms, women in comedy take all of this a step further. Accentuating a more traditional trope of femininity, they often prove that comedy doesn't belong to the guys.
