Making us laugh: The female comics taking to the stage

FRANCE 24 English published this video item, entitled “Making us laugh: The female comics taking to the stage” – below is their description.

With much of America and the rest of the world enthralled with Sarah Cooper’s TikTok impersonations of Donald Trump; just how hard is it to be a female stand-up comic in a world which is still very much male-dominated? Annette Young talks to American comedian, Sarah Donnelly, who’s now based in Paris. Also three years after it first emerged, #MeToo appears to have arrived in Iran with the highly-conservative Muslim country facing a tidal wave of accusations on social media about sexual abuse.

  • In This Story: Iran

    Iran, also called Persia, officially the Islamic Republic of Iran, is a country in Western Asia. Its central location in Eurasia and proximity to the Strait of Hormuz give it significant geostrategic importance. Tehran is the capital and largest city.

    Iran is home to one of the world’s oldest civilizations, beginning with the formation of the Elamite kingdoms in the fourth millennium BC. The Iranian Revolution established the current Islamic Republic in 1979.

    Iran’s political system combines elements of a presidential democracy and an Islamic theocracy. Iran is a founding member of the UN, ECO, OIC, and OPEC. It is a major regional and middle power and has large reserves of fossil fuels — including the world’s largest natural gas supply and the third largest proven oil reserves.

    The country’s rich cultural legacy is reflected in part by its 22 UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Historically a multi-ethnic country, Iran remains a pluralistic society comprising numerous ethnic, linguistic, and religious groups, the largest being Persians, Azeris, Kurds, Mazandaranis and Lurs.
