Television Comedy and Femininity : Queering Gender, Hardback Book

Television Comedy and Femininity : Queering Gender Hardback

Part of the Library of Gender and Popular Culture series

Hardback

Description

Can comedy on television harbour elements of gender transgression or subversion?

If a man is permitted to be ‘funny peculiar’ – playing the underdog or misfit – does a woman seem stranger in his place?

Mapping examples from British and American comedy television over the past 60 years, from I Love Lucy to The Big Bang Theory and Smack the Pony to Waiting For God, this book asks: are particular forms of television comedy gendered in specific ways?

Paying attention to series which have not been addressed in academic work, as well as more established shows, White offers fresh insights for the fields of television studies, gender and women’s studies, cultural history and comedy.
