COMEDIANS



Eva performs a stand-up gig and her intention is far from pleasing the audience.


Comedians is a short film and BFA graduation project by
Johanna Nyberg at Beckmans College of Design in Stockholm, Sweden 2016.

Based on female representation in film, I have explored the subject of humor
from a gender perspective. Men still dominate the comedy scene and set the
standard for what we consider to be funny. Inspired by interviews with female
comedians in Sweden I wanted to present their experiences in the field of comedy.
Is humor as free and unconditional for women as it is for me?
