With Lorena Iglesias, Penny Jay, Victoria Martín (Living Postureo) and Carolina Iglesias (Percebes y grelos)
What the hell is going on? Are women not “funny”? We will talk with four comedians who developed their work from the resistance and from the internet to know why it is difficult to assume that women are as funny as men.

Freelancer on the edge of the nervous breakdown. She began her first steps on digital contents with ‘Abuela, salgo el net’, first media focused on the news of content creators on the Internet, but quit the project because it didn’t make any money.
