The Comedy Field Report Ep. 53: Amy Solomon & Picking Up the Torch

There’s a great new comedy book, Notes from the Bathroom Line: Humor, Art, and Low-Grade Panic from 150 of the Funniest Women in Comedy, that has just arrived on shelves, both IRL and virtual, that is actually the first collection of writing by women comedians since the 70s. Amy Solomon, writer/producer on such great things like Barry and the editor of Notes from the Bathroom Line, joins TCB’s Jake Kroeger to discuss the journey of this crucial, hilarious book, how, even with 150 contributors, doesn’t come close to featuring all the funny women that you need to see/hear, and “hot” takes on Rick and Morty Day, SpongeBob Squarepants’ virus episode, and more.
