Ali Wong Writes Dear Girls
This week Ali Wong is crashing back and forth between breaking down barriers for women in comedy and simply being a vibe. In a series of letters she wrote to her daughters, Ashley and Claire finally feel like they’re reading the book of a stand up comedian who has done stand up. Later in the episode Fumi Abe joins us to dive deeper into the pages.

There are probably tons of reasons why women don't do stand up comedy. I get told constantly how I should do stand up but the idea of the logistics of a stand up career...I'm exhausted just thinking about. it's probably different for everyone but I'm pretty sure there are a lot of women who think that the safety of going from club to club is a barrier.
