Ep. 58 Fighting Weight Stigma in Hollywood, Body Positive Movement, Finding Humor in Life with FATCH Comedy
Play • 1 hr 1 min

We had the gals from FATCH Comedy with us to share some of their stories. FATCH (Fat + Sketch) Comedy is a sketch comedy team composed of fat writers and actors whose mission is to increase the visibility of people of size in the entertainment industry and the world at large. The FATCH Comedy team includes professional actors, comedians, Broadway performers, writers for stage and screen, and podcast hosts. 

These ladies have performed in LA at UCB, the Black Women in Comedy Festival, the Laugh Riot Grrrl Festival, and The Plus Bus. 

In the episode, you will hear how they are shifting the narrative on how fat bodies are viewed in Hollywood, addressing #weightstigma and their own journey to body respect. These ladies are the real deal and we were honored to have them on our show!

You can find them on Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, IMDB.
