Innovative. Provocative. Hilarious. Women. All Jane (formerly All Jane No Dick) Comedy Festival is an all-female comedy festival devoted to inspiring, encouraging, discovering and promoting the quality and diversity of women in comedy.
This curated festival focuses on selecting the very best women stand up, improv and sketch comedians working in comedy today. Our selection process aims to showcase a wide range of styles among women in comedy. Keeping the festival relatively small guarantees that every show – and every performer – delivers top notch comedy.
Curious Comedy Theater, a non-profit comedy theater in Portland, Oregon, is proud to produce this all-women comedy festival. The festival takes place in early fall each year in Portland and has plans to tour the Best of the Fest around the country and globe.
Today, women still represent only 17-19% of the comedy industry. Women are sorely under-represented in high profile comedy festivals, in writing rooms and in television appearances. Industry representatives explain this discrepancy by claiming quality women comedians are hard to find. All Jane was created to help bridge the gap between women comedians, audiences and industry decision-makers.
