The aim is to illusion a feeling of dialoguing with the audience while, in effect, the stand-up comedian is engaging and entertaining the audience through witty monologues, jokes, and one-liners. The performance of a stand-up comedian is regarded as a set or an act, often heavily inspired by semi-autobiographical or fictionalized extensions of their daily lives and experiences offstage. While the stage has predominantly been a man’s domain, women are breaking the ice and making their presence felt of late, on the standup comedy scene. There are many funny female stand up comedians who are making their mark and are a hit among the audience.
