“If I had to choose between ageism or sexism, I’d take a pat on the behind any day, since that meant someone noticed me.”
Carole Montgomery creator of Funny Women of A Certain Age What began as a way to work with her friends has exploded on the comedy scene. When Carole (a veteran of the stand up scene for over 40 years) started, you would never see two female comics on the same show. Fast forward to today’s comedy scene and nothing has changed, even though there are way more women in comedy. Funny Women or WOACA was created to give older women comics a chance to be seen and heard. Frustrated with how women are portrayed on television once they hit 50, Carole decided to do something about it. She’s fighting ageism AND sexism one joke at a time. The women who appear in WOACA are all funny, vibrant and brilliant, they just happen to be of a certain age. These women paved the way for the female comics you see today. The first TV special for the Showtime Network featured Fran Drescher, Carole Montgomery, Luenell, Lynne Koplitz, Vanessa Hollingshead and Kerri Louise. The special premiered March 23rd, 2019 and it made TV history as the first comedy special to feature 6 women over the age of 50.
In fact the special was the network’s highest rated premiere of a stand up show for 2019! The second Showtime special More Funny Women Of A Certain Age premiered March 14, 2020 to huge viewership. It stars another round of comedy greats. Caroline Rhea, Carol Leifer, Tammy Pescatelli, Julia Scotti and Thea Vidale.
The third special was taped in Los Angeles at the Irvine Improv during a global pandemic and premiered November 24th 2021. It features Teri Hatcher, Marsha Warfield, Wendy Liebman, Monique Marvez and Leighann Lord. All three specials prove that indeed #funnynevergetsold The specials are produced by Killer Bunny Entertainment. Executive producers are Carole Montgomery, Dave Goldberg and Rob Cea. Carole was featured in The Interrobang online magazine as one of the Top 10 Innovators in Comedy for 2019. Currently WOACA has a monthly residency in NYC at the Kraine Theatre going on its fifth year. WOACA was a featured show in the NY COMEDY FESTIVAL and was recently featured on the Today Show with Hoda & Jenna.

***** Bagels by Bell d/b/a B&S Bialy.
Now, you guys and Jeff Eats both know that this whole food blog “reviewing” situation is purely one big subjective call- you know, what I like, you may hate and vice versa!
With that in mind, a couple of days ago while shopping at The Fresh Market located at 5540 North Military Trail, Boca Raton, Florida 33496, (561) 994-2221) I came across Bagels by Bell d/b/a B&S Bialy (pkg-6, $4.99) in its bakery department and I gotta tell you guys- that all 6 bialys have already been toasted, eaten and were absolutely- off-the-chart delicious!
Like I said a few seconds ago, what I like you may hate and vice versa. All I know, is that in my day- I’ve probably eaten something like a 22,384 bialys and that that Bagels by Bell d/b/a B&S Bialy -bialys rank right up there with some of the best that I’ve eaten!
For you “detail” guys- the 6 bialys were toasted and eaten un-sliced (2 were topped with melted American cheese and bacon, 3 were topped with butter and strawberry jam, 1 was topped with cream cheese).
You guys can check thefreshmarket.com for store locations/product info.

Jeff Eats recently read the below article-on magicfive.hubpages.com.
Read it…it seems to make a ton of sense.
I’m just thinking that “sugar-free” gum would be the sensible-chew!
5 REASONS WHY YOU SHOULD CHEW GUM!
CHEW AWAY! IT’S OKAY!
Remember all those teachers who were always yelling, “SPIT OUT YOUR GUM!” Well, maybe they shouldn’t have! Turns out chewing gum helps improve memory and enhances cognitive powers. So maybe that gum would have done a lot more good in our MOUTHS than stuck UNDER THE DESK (ewww..gross…I don’t think it did much good under there, at all)!
This is good news for me, because I’ve always been a gum chewer. Oh, maybe not like that girl on Willie Wonka. But seriously, maybe those Oompa Loompas should change their little song about gum, because there are even MORE benefits to chewing it – besides just freshening your breath and (with some new brands) whitening your teeth, and helping you to stop smoking. Read on to discover 5 MORE benefits to chewing gum!
1). CHEWING GUM REDUCES STRESS! Yup..and it’s much healthier than getting drunk! Chewing gum reduces tension and helps release nervous energy. It also provides an outlet for frustration and irritation. (So chewing when you’re angry at your boyfriend for forgetting your anniversay is also a good idea)! Try it whenever you feel anxious, like before a big date or a doctor’s appointment. Pop in a piece of gum..it’ll help!
2). CHEWING GUM WILL KEEP YOU AWAKE! Next time you are driving long distance or have to pull an all-nighter for whatever reason, PULL OUT THE GUM! Studies show that chewing gum increases alertness and concentration while fighting sleepiness. And at least you won’t have to keep going to the bathroom, like when you guzzle down all those energy drinks and coffee!
3). CHEWING GUM HELPS MANAGE WEIGHT! Well that just makes sense. After all, you already have something in your mouth – which makes you less likely to want to put something else in it! Chewing is great between meals to cut down on snacking…or right after a meal to keep you from eating MORE! And now we have these delicious DESSERT flavor gums to choose from. At only 5 calories a piece, they taste yummy without packing on the pounds. I recommend the mint chocolate chip flavor – it lasts the longest! And it’s so amazing, because it really does taste like you’re chewing ice-cream….REALLLY!
4). CHEWING GUM IMPROVES DIGESTION! Feeling nauseous? YUCK! Here’s a tip – chew some MINT flavored gum. It will help! Chewing gum helps improve intestinal motility and increases saliva flow, which promotes more frequent swallowing – which helps prevent acid reflux! (Have it as a side, with your Pepto and glass of warm flat coke).
5). CHEWING GUM IMPROVES ORAL HEALTH! Yay – let’s here it for oral health! As I said before, chewing gum increases saliva, which is an important component of oral health and powerful protector of the oral cavity. It helps flush sugars, food debris, and decay-causing acids (ew!) out fo the mouth. Studies have shown that people who regularly chew sugar-free gum after meals have LESS cavities than those who don’t! (Remember 4 out of 5 dentists..what was up with that fifth dentist, anyway)?
So there you have it! Now of course I don’t recomment chewing like a cow…it looks tacky and annoys people. I also don’t recommend chewing gum on a job interview or in any professional setting (SO unprofessiona!)!
And you should spit it out before you run, ride the roller-coaster, or fall asleep (dangerous otherwise)!
But other than that..CHEW AWAY! Don’t forget bubble gum, too…it’s so much fun having those bubble blowing contests with family members. And also, don’t forget to take it with you when you fly, so you can combat that whole annoying ear popping situation!
So what are you waiting for? Let’s head to the store and buy some more gum! Another good thing about gum? It’s still a relatively cheap purchase! (Try Stride…the flavor really DOES last a super long time…More flavor for your money)! And with a POP of my gum, I’m outa here!
