The Writers Guild of America, West Committee of Women Writers presents this four-part discussion with comedy writer/performer/directors: Beth Armogida (formerly, "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno"), Rachel Axler (formerly, "The Daily Show"), Beth Einhorn ("Leno"), Laurie Kilmartin ("Conan"), Jen Kirkman ("Chelsea Lately"), Molly McNearney ("Jimmy Kimmel Live!"), Beth Sherman (formerly, "Leno," "Letterman") and Larry Wilmore ("Daily Show"). Former "Late Night with David Letterman" writer Nell Scovell moderates.
In this episode, the writers talk about how they got started in comedy writing, recall the first joke they got on the air and what it's like writing for a daily talk show.
