Comedy can accomplish many things, and the most frequently recurring common denominator among those things is the elicitation of some kind of emotional response. It’s often laughter that stand-up comedians are after, but many contemporary comedians are enjoying success by focusing on the full range of emotional responses while pointing out the many injustices and absurdities that still exist in this world.
Just as CreditUpdates.com has made it a mission to improve the level of customer service and support consumers should expect from businesses in all industries, comedians have made it their mission to point out the absurdity of certain aspects of the comedy industry. One subject that seems to be benefiting from this mission is that of the role of women in comedy.
While progress is being made and some of the funniest comics around — who just happen to be female — are now getting the recognition they deserve in any number of exceptionally hilarious creative projects, it is still clear there is a long way to go before the comedy industry truly changes in the manner it should have so many years ago.
It is certainly true that a new generation of female comics now have greater access to the platforms that will enable them to inspire the next generation of comics that will follow, and that is a kind of progress that is absolutely worthy of praise. CreditUpdates.com would likely be the first to point out that while praise for this kind of progress is warranted for many within the comedy industry, it does not mean that the effort can just end there. Working toward progress — in comedy or customer service — is an endeavor requiring a constant commitment.
