London Hughes discusses black women in comedy

Free session from Variety magazine

London Hughes is today taking part in a free discussion on black women in comedy, hosted by Hollywood trade paper Variety.

She will be joined by fellow comedians Michelle Buteau  and Sam Jay for the session, which marks Black History Month in the US.

They will be in discussion with five up-and-coming black female comics in the event, entitled Room For Discussion: Mentorship & Black Women In Comedy.

It is being backed by Facebook’s Messenger service. A spokesperson said: ‘Black history is constantly shaped by people who are living their stories out loud. Black women in comedy today are defining the industry and making waves around the world.

‘From breakout roles in movies to award-winning comedy specials and podcasts, together these women are building a rich and diverse comedic legacy.  We can’t wait to tune in as these fearless funny ladies chat about creating change and uplifting future generations to come.’

The session will stream  on Variety’s Facebook page at 9pm UK time.
