The Bechdel Test
Lively social commentary. Awesome empowering comedy. Bechdel Test is a smart satirical critique inspired by the Bechdel-Wallace test, which examines gender equality in movies. In order to pass the test, a movie simply needs to feature two named female characters talking to each other about something other than a man. This all-female improv comedy show invites you to live in a world unlike our own where all movies pass the test. You name a movie. Then we make it pass.
Directed by Kate Drummond and Kristine Ota.

Jet City Improv’s 27th season is made possible by support from the following:
