This Sunday, some of the funniest New Yorkers alive come together to rip into the worst misogynists in the country—with a livestreamed awards show. Lady Parts Justice—a non-profit network of comics and writers who organize for women's reproductive rights— is launching its Golden Probe Awards show fund-raiser, "the first ever awards show that recognizes outstanding achievements in sexism and anti-abortion extremism." Here's Abbi Jacobson and Ilana Glazer of Broad City introducing the nomination categories.
Host Jean Grae welcomes legendary comedians including Sarah Silverman, Samantha Bee, Phoebe Robinson, Lea DeLaria and Abbi and Ilana to present awards along with activists like Wendy Davis and Amy Hagstrom Miller. Because of the ever-growing list of woman-hating buffoons who take to microphones and twitter in our current political climate, no nominees will be announced until the show. But it's safe to say that certain enemies of Rosie O'Donnell and Alicia Machado will get special recognition.
Some of this year's categories include: "best acting like you care about women in a non-supportive role," "best original science," "best adaptation of reality in an elected or non-elected role" and "outstanding performance in an unscripted outburst."
The Golden Probe Awards are at Le Poisson Rouge at 8pm on Sunday. Tickets run for at least $100, but it's worth it to catch the acts (and it's for a kickass cause). If you can't make it, you can watch a free livestream here.
