The first painting in Callie Mastrianni's Senior Thesis Project on the History of Women in Comedy.

Callie studied the history of female comedians, their legacy, and their impact on the field. Carol Burnett, Lucille Ball, and Jackie "Moms" Mabley are credited as being a few of the early female comedians to challenge a male dominated field, and create a path for other women to be able to follow and gain traction.
