    Where are the women comics? Just wondering…

      Fair question, as there are more good women comics now than ever. Among others, The Stress Factory has Whitney Cummings on its schedule and has many up and coming women comics as opening acts; Bananas just had Judy Gold; and Scotty’s Comedy Cove has a good group of regular women headliners.
