Broad Comedy, led by comedian Katie Goodman
This feminist musical comedy is presented by the collective of award-winning performer/writer/directors who make up this company, founded and led by comedian Katie Goodman.
Since Broad Comedy first performed at Wellesley College more than a decade ago, the group has had an off-Broadway residency at SoHo Playhouse; appeared at 54 Below, Joe’s Pub, Caroline’s on Broadway; been named a “Top Ten Comedy Pick” at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in Scotland; and headlined fundraisers for Planned Parenthood, the ACLU, LGBTQ+ orgs, Democratic fundraisers, and women’s health organizations.
Katie Goodman—company director, author, keynote speaker, podcaster, improviser, HuffPo front-pager, and O, The Oprah Magazine contributor—was founder and director of the National Women’s Theatre Festival in Los Angeles and artistic director of the Philadelphia Women’s Theatre. It’s high time we have the group back to enjoy the fruits of their recent labor and the development of their feminist humor!
