It wasn’t until I became more confident with myself and I put myself forward instead of the jokes; at first it was put the jokes out there and I’m just behind the jokes.
But sometimes the women writers will pitch something and I’ll hear it, but the men will keep talking.
If something stinks, I say it stinks. But I try to massage it a little and not be as cutting, come behind it with a joke: Hey, I cut you deep, but now let me put a couple of stitches in you.
But I think funny and talent will always win out; I mean, of course there are hurdles, but I think if you’re funny you will get over all of that.
I work hard. The staff and crew see how much energy I put into this project, and it makes them step up.
