"I've been rich and I've been poor. Believe me, Honey, rich is better." -- Sophie Tucker, "The Last of the Red Hot Mamas" Molly Picon, Fanny Brice, Sophie Tucker, Joan Rivers, Gilda Radner and playwright Wendy Wasserstein are profiled in this entertaining portrait of three generations of funny women who paved the way in a male-dominated industry.
Terrific archival clips, narration and interviews are interspersed with comments from a group of contemporary comediennes (including Judy Gold) who meet at a deli, à la "Broadway Danny Rose," and exchange views on the prodigious talent and influence of these remarkable pioneers. Produced by the Jewish Women's Archive.
