Male Comedians Need Justice: Matt Zaller Confronts 'Bridesmaids' Cast On Inequality (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

For far too long, white, male comedians have been banging their heads against a glass ceiling. They've been told they're not funny, they're not attractive enough, or they're not tough enough for the entertainment business. They've been relegated to minor roles that pay way less than their female counterparts, and in many cases, they've only been given the opportunity for advancement if they compromised their values (and bodies).

Fortunately, Matt Zaller has decided to take a stand. The new film "Bridesmaids," with its all-female lead cast, is just another example of Big Hollywood ignoring what funny, white men have to offer. So Zaller went straight to the source and asked some tough questions of two of the movie's stars, Wendi McLendon-Covey & Ellie Kemper, and its director, Paul Feig (a white, male...oh, the irony).

And he did it all wearing a dress. Keep fighting the good fight, Mr. Zaller.
