Abstract

The issue of the lack of women working in British television comedy has recently been highlighted by both critics and creative workers. Through thematic analysis of interviews with British television comedy professionals, this article explores the ways in which women talk about their work and position in this industry, focusing on the context of gender. After outlining the specific industrial contexts within which female comedy professionals’ work, the article examines the institutionalised gender norms and practical impediments revealed by interviewees’ responses, whilst also exploring the institutional, as well as personal initiatives which have been instigated to address these problems.
