Google 4: Laughing Instead of Crying: Subverting Stereotypes with Comedy

Radhika Vaz – (Author/Writer/Comedian) and  Nadia P. Manzoor (Actor, Writer, Producer) – both creators of ‘Shugs and Fats’ – a Gotham award winning comedy web series; team up to talk about using comedy to spark difficult dialogue and overturn stereotypes.  They will walk you through their creative journey from developing two unlikely comedic characters to pitching a long form TV show on the mean streets of Hollywood. They will talk about their evolution as creators, writers, and eventually as producers, and how despite living in different continents they were able to make it work. Finally, they will discuss how their desire to spread the word of feminism was ultimately the driving force behind their comedy.
