A sketch from the 2017 Iteration of The Bechdel Show performed at Bryant Lake Bowl in which three survivors of the zombie apocalypse search for supplies and argue about the merits of beauty during the disaster. The sketch critiques representations of women seen in action, adventure, and horror movies and tv.
The Bechdel Show, a Slap Happy Studios production, is a sketch comedy show inspired by the Bechdel test that encourages the audience to rethink gender and sexuality representations and norms through the use of humor. The Bechdel Test is a metric created by Alison Bechdel that evaluates the realism of the representation of women in film and television. Our show seeks to critique commonly observed media tropes and everyday expectations regarding gender and sexuality.
