On Why She Doesn’t Claim To Be A Feminist Even Though Successful In Her Own Right: Because I don’t know very much about it. Audiences aren’t to blame, she says, if women are not always successful as stand-up comics. lt’s the girls – actually getting up onstage and doing it, it’s not the audience acceptance or resistance. A lot of girls just don’t like it. lt’s a very hard life being a stand-up comic and most women are not built for it. Most women are just not strong enough, physically or mentally, lt takes a terrible toll out of you – you have to be very pushy, you have to work like a dog. lt’s a very rough life, but if you’re committed to it, it can be rewarding.” (October 1978)
