Hi Alice, try the National Film Board of Canada WISECRACKS. "a 90 min
documentary which explores the world of female comedians on stage and
beyond" Featured: Phyllis Diller, Whoopi Goldberg, Paula Poundstone,
Deborah Theaker and many others. "elevates stand-up comedy to new
heights of wit and wisdom and tells the story of how women really
create and perform comedy" (from the NFB catalogue) It is a wonderful
look at women performers and is incredibly funny as well.
