Tell The Bartender - A Storytelling Podcast

In this special short episode, we talk to Jen Collier, a comedian in London. Last week she received an email that told her she was being pulled from a show because there were "too many women" on the bill. Jen tweeted a screenshot of the email and it quickly went viral. Jen joins the bartender to talk about her sudden online fame, being a woman in comedy, and what it feels like to have Sarah Silverman on your side.
