funny women fest

Funny Women Fest was created in 2014 by Lauren Frost and Erin Miller Williams - formally known as the sketch duo Cake Batter - in an effort to celebrate creatives and spark collaboration and community among women in entertainment. 

Each year, Funny Women Fest throws an #FWFLA party - showcasing the best of the best in comedy, art, and music - all created by women. A place where indie artists share the same stages as celebrities, performing stand up, sketch, improv, storytelling, original screenings and more. #FWFLA also goes beyond performances to offer panel discussions, artisan bazaars, visual art showcases and meet-ups for both up-and-comers and leaders in the industry. 

The 2016 #FWFLA featured over 600 women performers, across multiple stages in Highland Park, Los Angeles. Supporters of the fest include CAA, William Morris Agency, Sundance, Warner Brothers, LA Weekly, Amy Poehler's Smart Girls, Funny or Die, Wifey TV, iO West, Buzzed, All Things Comedy, Cracked, HelloGiggles, Backstage, Comedy Gives Back, TimeOut Chicago, Ladies of Comedy Association, Redeye, LA Talk Radio, Scriptd, UCB Comedy, SoulCycle, Angel City Brewery, Final Draft, New Filmmakers LA,  and many more.

Fenceless

Comedy web series about housemates Lauren Frost, Angela Rysk and Erin Miller Williams. Three women living together during the confusing times when you've started starting using wrinkle cream but are still playing beer pong until 2am...and slaying it. They're old enough to know better and still young enough to do it anyway. We follow along as they navigate the hustle of trying to making rent, dating in a city where fun-employment and hairy backs are a catch, and learning to accept that their lives are nowhere near where they thought they would be at 30. Everyday is a challenge, but no pity parties here...because who needs a husband and a white picket fence when you have best friends and a porch.
