Quotes: Deborah Frances-White

Posted on 16 October 2012

“I am ashamed to say that I feel my industry, comedy, which is ostensibly about self-expression, pricking pomposity and holding a mirror up to society is, on this issue, less ethical than investment banking…I feel that large parts of the comedy establishment create a hostile working environment for women, by holding views and practices that are outdated in nearly all other industries.”

From “Is ‘Mad Men’ a Period Piece? Not If You Work In Comedy…”, Huffington Post UK

Deborah Frances-White, comedian, improviser, and screenwriter
