    FANTASTICALLY HILARIOUS!!!!!!!

    Strap your boots on and let these four ground-breaking, hilarious lesbian comedians take you for a ride. Kate Clinton, Karen Williams, Marga Gomez, and Suzanne Westenhoefer star in this well-made documentary that alternates between brilliant interviews and on-stage clips from their stand-up shows. Both the interviews and the clips will leave your belly aching from laughter and your eyes opened to the political and humorous landscape of lesbian stand-up in the 80s and 90s, also known as the pre-Ellen Degeneres years. These women were and are true revolutionaries. Their only tools? Being queer and making people laugh about being queer. And their brilliant. Gay, straight, man, woman, anyone: this film is not only politically educational and inspiring, it's simply hilarious.
