The Hollywood Reporter held a fantastic ‘Women in Comedy‘ round table recently, hosting a range of female comedians talking life, work, sexism, racism, political correctness in comedy, the awkwardness of on-screen sex scenes, and everything else in between. 

The wonderful ladies involved were: Lena Dunham, Amy Schumer, Gina Rodriguez, Tracee Ellis Ross, Ellie Kemper, and Kate McKinnon – six of the funniest women in comedy today. 

From Dunham talking about the awkward props you have to wear over your genitals during sex scenes, to McKinnon’s Hillary Clinton impression, to Schumer stating that she balances comedy and political correctness by ‘listening to her pussy’ – there’s literally not a bad moment in this conversation. 

You can watch snippets of each incredible comedian speaking on the round table below:
