The 1st Annual Funny Women Festival – Los Angeles (#FWFLA) will be a celebration of creative women in all types of comedy, sure to create an even stronger community by attracting comedians from across the country.

A percentage of all revenue will be donated to The Downtown Women’s Center, a nationally recognized pioneer of permanent supportive housing and the only resource in LA that is exclusively dedicated to serving the unique needs of homeless and very low-income women in downtown Los Angeles’s Skid Row community.
