Editorial Reviews

No topic is too shocking or shameful in this bold, hilarious documentary of influential women in stand up comedy. Ellen DeGeneres, Whoopi Goldberg, Joy Behar, Phyllis Diller, Kim Wayans and more tell it like it is and deliver the classic and sarcastic lines that make them the stars they are. Plus, timeless footage of ageless comediennes like Mae West, Lucille Ball, Phyllis Diller, and Beatrice Lillie - who paved the way to the stage for women - make this an uproarious stand up pick you don't want to miss!

Format: VHS Tape
I have seen this video several times and each time I like it even more. As a young female comic just starting out in the business, this tape has been an invaluable resource for me, not to mention highly entertaining. If you're looking for just another tape of stand-up then this isn't it. However, if you're interested in learning about female comics and looking at this male-dominated field from a female perspective, then I highly recommend Wise Cracks. It's several years old, but still very relevant. Some of the comics are professionals, many of whom have gained even more fame since the release of this film. Other comics are amateur, but all of them represent the very real world of women in comedy, from all levels of talent. Watch for the thinly veiled reference made by a pre-out Ellen regarding her sexual orientation. All this and more! Wise Cracks is a dumb title, but it's worth watching.

I didnt like this tape at all.Most of these comedians i really like & i thought i would enjoy this tape.It shows a couple minutes at most of each ones stand up routine.Its more of a back stage interview with each comic.

It wasn't what I expected. I bought because of Ellen Degeneres as one of the comedian, but there wasn't much interviews with her.

This was a replacement for my old VHS tape. It continues to delight me. It is the tape I love to share.
