The National Post: More women on stage: Comics discuss how to encourage women to perform stand-up

After winning Homegrown, The Canadian Press reached out for an interview on women in comedy. This article was published (in different forms and lengths) in many major Canadian news publications, such as the National Post, The Toronto Star, The Vancouver Sun, The Globe and Mail, MetroNews, and others.

Here is an excerpt from my interview: " 'I think your responsibility when you say [certain] jokes is to know how they are going to affect the audience.' Society, she said, is already homophobic, racist and transphobic. 'So if you can make jokes about anything, why are you touching on tired stereotypes? By making jokes in that way you are just another drop in the bucket. It’s boring.' ”

Mobtreal: D.J. Mausner: JFL35 Improv Comedy Star

The wonderful Stephanie Ein did a spotlight on me for Mobtreal prior to my Just For Laughs and OFF-JFL shows in 2017. She wrote "D.J. Mausner is Montreal Comedy’s multiple-threat: a brilliant stand-up, improv and sketch comedian, who writes and produces her own shows. Still not impressed? She’s only 22 years old. This summer, Mausner brings what Just For Laughs Montreal lovingly refers to as her “harrowing sincerity,” to a mind-boggling six shows at JFL35 and its hip co-festival, OFF-JFL."

I answered a few questions she had, too. Read it all here.
