Picks and Pans Review: Women Aloud

UPDATED 07/27/1992 at 01:00 AM EDT Originally published 07/27/1992 at 01:00 AM EDT

Comedy Central (Thursdays, 9 P.M. ET)


Think of any of the countless stand-up comedy shows where men whine about their wives or girl friends, continuing the "Take my wife—please" tradition. In that context, a program where women get to rag on guys seems appropriate. Hosted by actress-writer Mo Gaffney, Women Aloud is an odd mix of a stand-up show and Oprah. In a half hour, two comics perform, a serious guest discusses the day's topic (Women in Politics, say, or Infidelity), and Gaffney interviews the studio audience. It's an intriguing blend.

Too much is going on, though. Sticking with one comedian and one guest would make the pace less frenetic. An occasional appearance by a man (whether sexist pig or Alan Alda) wouldn't hurt.
