Highlights from the May 17, 2015 show
Play Along with The Game is Rigged!
For the first time EVER, we’ve made the bonus round questions available for you to play along! Test your wits alongside our guest, then try the second round on your own. Fun!
What is Broadly Speaking?
Broadly Speaking uses Comedy, Games, and Stories to raise awareness of women’s voices, causes and actions.
If there’s an issue you care about, there are 3 ways to help: say something, do something, give something. Our show starts with comics “saying something” about the cause at hand, highlights an organization “doing something” to help (with information on how viewers can also be part of the action), and ends with a local celebrity “giving something” to that organization while playing a goofy, interactive game. (Members of the live audience have a chance to join the fun here too.)
Past episodes have featured the talents of Kira Soltanovich, Tess Rafferty, Dani Klein Modisett, Alex Alexander, Betsy Salkind, Laura House, Jodi Miller, Kristina Wong, Laurie Kilmartin, Tracie Walker, Jeff Cannata, Gary Anthony Williams, Maz Jobrani, Barry Pearl, and Maury Sterling. We have helped the following organizations: The Eamonn Cannon Comedy Project at Inner-City Arts, Transitional Housing Program at the Santa Monica YWCA, Write Girl, Mothers Fighting for Others, LA Story Works, and Aviva.
We’re out to prove that everybody has the ability to do something good right now, and we have a lot of fun in the process.
Act One: Say Something
We highlight women’s voices, specifically voices that make you laugh and think. The topic will be based on the organization featured in Act Two.
Act Two: Do Something
We celebrate women’s actions in a way that will inspire folks to realize that we all have the capacity to do something to make the world a little better, using the skills we already have and the tools at our disposal.
Act Three: Give Something
We raise donations for our featured organization by inviting a local celebrity on to play “The Game is Rigged.” Then we give the audience a chance to join in the fun.
