Women of comedy are placed in one of two "pigeonholes:" over-feminized and over-masculinized. Clare Ruble, student at Furman University, dissects the pigeonholes we all too often place female comedians in, and spreads the idea of equality from the stage.
Clare Ruble is a senior Theatre Major on the Pre-Health path towards speech therapy. She enjoys Chipotle, rollerblading, and singing really loudly. The kind of singing that is only appropriate on a Broadway stage, but she does it in small spaces. Her talk focuses on being pigeonholed. Being put into tiny categories that are hard to escape. She will discuss how this used in comedy today.
This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at http://ted.com/tedx
