Before I left the UK to come to Austin for my talk about funny women in business I was invited onto the Allison Ferns show for BBC Sussex to discuss whether women can be funny and still be taken seriously.
In the interview we chat about some of the theories that exist suggesting women can’t be funny. I share my experience of using comedy marketing through my videos of the last year and I offer some quick tips for dipping your toes into humour marketing without damaging your credibility.
